Heroes and heroines abound in Ōtautahi-Christchurch. There is a rich legacy of local legends, some extraordinary things have been happened. In this course, we will investigate, describe and present the story of a local legend. We will be giving particular attention to places, events and people of the inner city. We will aim to link the stories of the central city to the area of our new school site, and the tangata whenua,, heroes, villains, legends, ghosts, places, and people. We will also aim to link the story to our core values. Hopefully we will be spending some of our time in and around town, and at the museum.
Students will produce a some form of poster, short movie or stop animation, performance or sculpture that tells the story of their particular local legend.
