School drain art project

Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE -

A tani­wha is now guard­ing one of the drains at Porirua School.

A group of ju­nior school pupils de­signed the art­work as part of a project about what should go in the citys drains - only wa­ter.

Teacher Hannah Arm­strong said now the chil­dren talk about the im­pact of rub­bish go­ing down the drain as they sit out­side eat­ing their lunch.

‘‘Only rain down the drain they chant,’’ she said.

Fol­low­ing the com­ple­tion of the drain art, stu­dents at­tached la­bels to all the drains in Awarua Street.

Teacher Maz Ho­man said the school now plans to take more groups out to com­plete drain la­belling in all the streets in Eld­son.
