The title for Rm 4’s sculpture is He Tangata, He Tangata, He Tangata (It’s The People, It’s The People, It’s The People). This sculpture can be found on the fence in the grove of trees by the driveway.
Room 4 wondered and looked for ideas on the Internet.They decided to weave and Miss Ellis said “Why don’t we weave our ideas together?” They have woven cultures together and the threads through poles near our pool area.
The sculpture is made out of nylon rope and pre-coloured thread. The colours used are red, blue, green and black. Blue represents the Manukau Harbour, the Tui and our school logo and uniform. Red represents the Pohutukawa flower and Manaakitanga (Kindness, Respect, Honesty) and the Key Competency of Managing Self. Green represents the trees, our Rimu team and the Inquiry Process of Taking Action. Black represents the colour of the Tui and the black volcanic nature of Tamaki Makaurau and Te Pane O Mataoho. It feels soft to the touch and you are allowed to touch it, but please don’t untie the rope!
