Local fame visualised
Ideas to make Putaruru world famous were discussed recently at Putaruru College.
The seminar, Putting Putaruru on the Map, was the title of 2011’s cross-curricular project at the secondary school.
Students were given a brief to present a proposal of how they could put Putaruru on the map. Over term four they had several twohour sessions where they generated ideas, planned their projects, gained feedback, sought opinions and put together their final presentations.
These ideas were presented to a panel of judges in a Dragon’s Den style earlier this month.
