Central Otago Mirror - - CENTRAL NEWS -

Some of the com­mu­nity’s un­sung heroes were thanked at a spe­cial cel­e­bra­tion held for them at Gold­fields Pri­mary School, in Cromwell, last week. As part of the Hori­zons pro­gramme for ex­tended learn­ing, which in­volves 12 pupils from Gold­fields Pri­mary School and Cromwell Pri­mary School, the chil­dren each chose an un­sung hero who they wanted to thank by invit­ing them to af­ter­noon tea. Teacher Char­lotte Raw­cliffe said the pupils came up with the idea af­ter hav­ing a group dis­cus­sion about un­sung heroes. As well as bak­ing food for af­ter­noon tea, the pupils also chose their own way of thank­ing their hero, with some ways in­clud­ing mak­ing a card, writ­ing a poem and writ­ing a speech.

Best mum: Lachie Crowle, 9, from Cromwell Pri­mary School, with his mum, Mariea Crowle. Lachie chose his mum­be­cause, ‘‘she’s the best­mum and I love her more than the world’’.

Al­ways there: Lin­coln Robert­son, 10, from Cromwell Pri­mary School, with his mum, Nikki Robert­son. Lin­coln chose his­mum­be­cause, ‘‘she’s al­ways there forme­when I need her most’’.
