The Treaty of Waitangi

The Treaty of Waitangi was first signed on the 6th of February in 1840. A public holiday is held to commemorate this significant event.  The following movie was created by a group of students from our school back in 2013 who were lucky enough to visit Waitangi in the Bay of Islands. This was an incredible opportunity to film on location where the original event actually took place. This was also part of 'Our Nations Children' project between the Waitangi National Trust and Westpac. The 3Ps of Protection, Partnership and Participation are an important part of the Pt England Way.

The film was also screened at the Manaiakalani Film Festival in 2013.
