Photo: KRISTINA RAPLEY By KRISTINA RAPLEY School life today would be unrecognisable to students from the 1800s. Year 11 pupils at Ormiston Senior College are highlighting that in a video filmed at Howick Historical Village and their Flat Bush school that opened this year. The video follows a student who is zapped from her class- room in the 1800s into the future at the senior college. Shivani Rajan, Mavish Prasad and Archal Lal, all 15, are part of a group called Shaping OSC (Ormiston Senior College). The video is part of a project they started last year as year 10 students at Mission Heights Junior College. The aim is to have a student influence during the develop- ment of their school. They've surveyed other students, held regular meetings with the college senior leaders and board members, been on committees and been involved in decisions such as selecting furniture, uniform, subjects, timetable structure, facilities and technology. As part of the project they will represent Mission Heights Junior College and New Zea- land in the United States in June at the International Future Problem Competition. Historic village education team leader Sue Popping says about 12,000 children visit the facility every year from around 500 schools. She says the living museum is a fantastic resource for learn- ing outside the classroom and many older students go there for subjects like drama, pho- tography, history and food tech- nology. They want to learn about how people settled and the challenges they faced and how what they did then has impac- ted on their lives today.'' Some of the activities for younger students range from rag rug making, nursery rhymes, butter making and carrying out a school lesson which is always the highlight of the trip. School is something so fam- iliar to them and it's fun to com- pare their school life to how it was back then. It was a very different method of education in Victorian times,'' she says.
