A selection of Team 5 students were lucky enough to experience Waitangi during Term 3.

Before the trip, students researched the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi. They brainstormed ideas of what they wanted to film while up in the Bay of Islands and it was decided to create a mini-documentary about the signing of the Treaty.

One of the highlights for our students was the fact that they got to walk in the footsteps of many of our ancestors.  It was an amazing experience for them indeed!

Many hours were spent writing scripts, choosing actors, collecting costumes, thinking about film shots, shooting, editing, creating voice-overs etc.  This is their entry for the Manaiakalani Film Festival 2013.   Introducing... 'Waitangi'
