#5 Day Three Thank You Protests in video and pictures

Thursday began with a school coming to us, and us going to them. Entirely on their own initiative (having recieved the general invitation to participate) Central New Brighton School students arrived unannounced with Thank You signs.

So we headed off down the mall on one of Mark Harvey’s Thank You Marches.

We ended up at the Pier only to find – you guessed it – some politicians.

Then it was in the van on a field trip to North New Brighton and Freeville School. Something like half of the families of the school have houses in the Red Zone and this is a school soon to close and be merged. Tim J Veling was our guide, having already spent extensive time here with the students developing works which see them consider the future of their school site. Here’s some of the more vacated surroundings.

The result of a power workshop (highlighting how well these students work as groups with the seniors helping the juniors) was a Thank You March around the block, to a chorus of barking dogs.

It was all over in 45 minutes with a rousing Thank You waiata and haka before we left.
