School celebrates end of lockdown

Posted at 12:40pm Monday 03 Aug, 2020

Students at Tomarata School decided to celebrate the country's emergence from Covid-19 lockdown by building their own chicken coop, soon to be filled with chickens donated by a local farmer.

The materials for the coop were donated by Duncan Mckenzie at Carters Mangawhai. Last month, the school buried a time capsule with mementos of their Covid-19 experiences.

It included stories and poems the children wrote about their time in lockdown, as well as gloves, a mask and hand sanitiser.

The capsule is scheduled to be dug up on March 26, 2040 by future students.
