Per f ec t place for pr ojec t

When Anna Bish needed to de­sign and build a project for her graph­ics class, she didn’t have to look very far for help.

The One­hunga High School stu­dent had a team of builders on hand and the per­fect lo­ca­tion to bring her de­signs to life.

She is work­ing with stu­dents from her school’s build­ing and construction depart­ment to cre­ate a hor­ti­cul­ture unit and shade house for stu­dents at Mt Roskill In­ter­me­di­ate.

Chil­dren from the in­ter­me­di­ate reg­u­larly clean up nearby Oak­ley Creek and the shade house will give them a place to grow and store plants and equip­ment.

Anna says it is great to be able to help out the chil­dren while do­ing her as­sign­ment at the same time.

“I needed a project to do but it has also been a great op­por­tu­nity for the school and some­thing stu­dents will be able to use a lot,” she says.

Anna’s as­sign­ment for year 13 graph­ics re­quired her to de­sign a project for a client and see it through to the build­ing stage.

She con­tacted her for­mer teacher at Mt Roskill In­terme- di­ate Sean Car­roll and worked out the idea for the hor­ti­cul­ture unit.

Mr Car­roll says the project is very ex­cit­ing for the school.

“We have al­ways worked on clean­ing up the creek and now this is go­ing to be the en­gine room for it all,” he says.

One­hunga High build­ing and construction school teacher Ben Cor­bett says the project was a great op­por­tu­nity for his stu­dents as well.

Boys from the school will be build­ing the shade house and putting in the plumb­ing and cladding.
