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.
