Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art. (Leonardo da Vinci)
Ko te tokitope, ko te whao ngau, he tohu mauri
Ko te tātaki kawai he whakaara wairua
Ko te taumata atua, takaia ki te koroawai parirau
E hikina ai i tōna taongatanga ki te matakite, ki te rangatiratanga
(Ngā Toi i roto i te Marautanga o Aotearoa, 2000)

Welcome http://nzsl.vuw.ac.nz/ Come and see our work at Trade Aid Merivale, Christchurch this Fairtrade Fortnight. Celebrate World Fair Trade Day Saturday 9th May 10am to 4pm, food, music and activities. Learn a song from Ghana.
Heaton has been a
Fairtrade School since 2010.
All the year 8 students
study Fair Trade and the staff use Fairtrade tea, coffee and hot chocolate in
the staff room. We promote Fair Trade throughout our community in a variety of
ways, one of which is by producing artwork inspired by Fair Trade.
This year the current
year 8 students have created paintings using Fairtrade Coffee on Fair Trade
Coffee Sacks. Each student chose to include a quote that was significant.
Another group worked in clay.
The Extension Art Group
has made a round relief plaque in plaster which has been coloured with oil
paint made from Fair Trade Cocoa and Olive Oil.
Can you spot which Trade
Aid items have been used in the paintings and the relief?
Cocoa Beans from Ghana,
Wire People and butterflies from Kenya, Wood Blocks from India, Olive Oil from
Palestine, Rice from Thailand, Coffee Beans from Ethiopia, Cloves from Sri
Lanka, Cocoa from the Dominican Republic. Coffee sacks from various countries.
