Tick for Kids Campaign
On Tuesday morning 10 WB Social Studies attended the launch of the Tick for Kids' campaign at Rutherford Primary School. The 'Tick for Kids' campaign aims to raise awareness and spur action on important youth issues. Representatives from several political parties attended the event, including NZ First, National, Labour, and the Maori Party. Students asked these politicians questions about the issues they thought were important, including questions about mental health, education, the decile ranking system and pay equity for women. Students from both Rutherford Primary and Rutherford College were articulate, and represented their schools particularly well.
