Whangārei Girls' High School
Region: Tai Tokerau
Art form: Ngā Toi Māori
Project name: Te pou o Tiongongo
Project information: The aim is to design and carve a waharoa for our kai garden on our school grounds. Our creative will work with the lead teacher and 10 students to complete a portfolio of work to support their NCEA Whakairo credits. The completion of the waharoa will acknowledge the original name of the whenua our kura sits on ‘Tīngoingoi’ and its original use as gardens that serviced Tawatawhiti Pa, which is 500 metres from our kura.
Project starting: February 2022
