    • Kids Partnership Programme: Kids – Have a Say in Our City
      • 2 Jun 2015

      • Democracy and engagement are healthy signs for a local community and so when the Mayor asked how we could get more young people expressing their viewpoint and becoming engaged with the democractic process, we asked our young people their opinion! Our new partnership between schools and the Porirua City Council is all about active learning about local government, civics and making things work at the local level. With assistance from Partners Porirua & PCC staff, students devise and work through a project plan identifying objectives and outcomes. They present a proposal to the city council for the funding required to either complete the project or kick start their ideas. The proposal could demonstrate the school’s contribution ‘in kind’, e.g. resources, the schools’ manpower, research & development. As in the real world, some projects are simply too expensive and cannot be justified! In 2015 we have 3 projects within the Kids Partnership Programme: Titahi Bay School Icon Project Ngati Toa School Stream Crossing project Titahi Bay School Welcome Sign Project
