Winchester School (Palmerston North)

Region: Taranaki/Whanganui/Manawatu

Art form: Multi-Disciplinary

Project name: Tūrangawaewae

Creative name: Toi Warbrick

Project information: This project is an exploration of human experience in/near the current location of Winchester School and its proximity to the Manawatū Awa. Students will experiment with and develop storytelling techniques of combining music, texts, and images. Some students will develop research skills needed to create new art. Others will work with surveys and feedback to refine work. Some students will learn to play ngā taonga pūoro (Māori musical instruments) and others will learn to sing in two-part harmony. The project works towards a 30–40-minute performance developed by Years 5 and 6 students. 

Inspired by our creatives’ work, performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018, ‘Tūrangawaewae’ will also be a pick-a-path story. It will be performed by students using spoken word, music, songs, and chapbooks containing student writing and drawings. Chapbooks will be a tangible take-home for students and their whānau. 

We have a native bush area at school that has been "out of bounds" for many years and recent work has begun to restore it as a learning space. Students learning the stories behind the flora and fauna, along with traditional stories from Rangitāne fit both the Science and NZ Aotearoa Local Histories. Our relationship with Rangitāne has grown over the past three years through our kāhui ako, and our school maintains relationships with rangatira from Rangitāne.

Project starting:  May 2022
