Partnership, Participation and Protection!

We have been studying about the history of New Zealand and the importance of Partnership, Participation and Protection if people are going to work well together. Were these ideals that were only important in the past with the development and signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, or are they still relevant and important today? Watch our movie and see some of the awesome work from the amazing crew of Room 18!


  1. What an awesome movie you have created Room 18. I like the way that you have told us about the history of NZ; how the treaty grants us the rights to participation, partnership and protection; and how we see it outworking at Pt England School. But most of all I enjoyed seeing how YOU have worked as a team to put this movie together. Well Done to all of you!

  3. Wow! This is great! I am fascinated and want to know how you created this movie. What programme or software have you used? How long did it take you from start to finish? This is exciting and innovative stuff.

  4. Hi Barbara, I'm glad you enjoyed our movie. The animation was made using HYPERSTUDIO and then it was put into IMOVIE where the audio and voiceovers were inserted. We then saved it as a .dv file (for our PENN television broadcast), and then again as a .mov file for our blog. This project was something that we worked on throughout the first term. It is very difficult to say how many hours went into the project. It took about 1 1/2 hours to create he movie that you see which is some of the highlights from the individual work of the students in Room 18. I hope this explaination helps you out.

  5. Thank you. As we don't have apple computers I need to source a similar programme to imovie for pcs. But I am looking forward to having my students work on this kind of learning. Take care and keep up the great work so I can be inspired and enlightened.
