During the Helping Hands Build scheduled to begin in April 2017 in Newmarket Senior Academy students, parents and staff will be given the opportunity to take up tools and build a house. For Junior School students, it won’t be as easy to participate in the build.
Following on from Conrad LaPointe, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity Auckland, coming to speak at Junior School assembly, the youngest members of the College gave up their lunchtimes to build Lego houses for Habitat. The Lego building, over three lunchtimes, became a community by the end of the week. There was a great deal of collaboration among the Junior School girls and Year 12 girls, who came to help and ended up making new little friends.
