Room 18: Being The Change -

Being The Change Makers!


Room 18 have seen their inquiry focus in action; seeing change happen on the travelwise coal face.


 In Term 1 the travelwise students of Room 18 studied and suggested possible changes to Longford Street to make the street a safer place for pedestrians. Their favourite choice was to increase the amount of footpath on the street. They wanted to replace a grassy bank with paved footpath to encourage children and residents alike to walk safely on the street.


This change is now taking place. Longford Street has a new footpath thanks to the Auckland Council and many other change-minded interested parties, including Room 18.

The Room 18 students visited the construction site and spoke with builders and marvelled at this new addition to Longford Street.
