Stu­dent show moves par­ents

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

An ex­hi­bi­tion of stu­dent art at Am­is­field School has im­pressed par­ents.

All stu­dents have worked hard over the past term to cre­ate a di­verse range of art work which in­cluded Ta Moko, com­puter art, sun­flow­ers and work de­pict­ing the Treaty of Wai­tangi.

South Waikato News spoke to Ethan Smits from Room 4, at Am­is­field who cre­ated art about the Treaty of Wai­tangi.

‘‘We learnt a whole bunch about Hongi Hika and Hone Heke; did you know they’re two dif­fer­ent peo­ple?’’ Ethan asked the South Waikato News re­porter.

When asked what his thoughts were on the treaty Ethan knew ex­actly what he would have done.

‘‘ If I was a Maori chief back then, I would have done what Waikato did and I wouldn’t have signed it,’’ he said.
