Dr Farrelly Hui
Last Friday we had Dr Trisia Farrelly visit WHS for a lunchtime library hui. Dr Farrelly was a finalist last year for the 2021 Aotearoa Women Of Influence Awards, and she came to speak primarily to Year 13 Economics and Sociology classes about her role on the UN working group to reduce plastic production on the planet. It was open to all students though, and there was a good turnout from all year levels and interests across WHS.
“Your contribution is exceptionally powerful”
“It is ONLY through civil society pressure that we are at the stage we are at now”; “the pressure, endurance, passion from citizens, students, teachers, all people, are so important- you are the makers of change”
“And you can help add to this message and mahi. You can make submissions and do cleanups and provide your data on manufacturers products to: Zero waste network Aotearoa, Aotearoa Plastic Pollution alliance, Para Kore.” “You all can make a difference”.
We’re now in the middle of the term and our students are busy in a range of classes. Our workshop and fashion technology students are working on construction projects and our Communication Group continues to teach valuable life skills.
