Your presentation was informative and your enthusiasm in presenting was well received by the twelve Year 9 groups. You obviously have a talent as a storyteller!!
Your Session tied up really effectively with our work on Parihaka. We have a school-wide focus on endorsing and using their principles.
At present, there is some debate in our country that schools are not teaching enough NZ history and so our students are missing out on identity. Your session proves that wrong. The information you covered, as you said, was extensive – not only in quantity but as a vast, cohesive sweep across NZ and world history.
Once again, I appreciate your energy in presenting so passionately to our students.
