Orewa College commemorates the Great War

100 years since the start of WW1 and our socials department decided to recreate a bit of trench warfare. When they spoke about it I pictured a hole in the ground. But what they created was an authentic learning experience which was fun even just standing on the sideline looking on. The students have really lived and breathed some history today. The planning into every last detail was amazing. This is a part of history which has come alive for all of us. Well done to the social studies teachers!
