Signs point to success at Riverslea
Secret no more: Riverslea School principal Maurice Rehu and year 5 pupils Ihi Harris (right) and Franklin Ryland, both 9, in front of the school's new
welcome sign the two boys worked hard to get.
Riverslea School is no longer
Hastings' best-kept secret.
Finding the small school,
tucked around the corner from
Splash Planet on Beatty St, is no
longer a problem after pupils led a
successful campaign to have two
signposts erected nearby, and a
new welcome installed at the
After noticing that Mayfair
School had three signposts,
Riverslea pupils wrote to the
council requesting two of the
bright signs be erected for their
school on nearby Jellicoe St.
Two year 5 pupils, Franklin
Ryland and Ihi Harris, both 9,
then embarked on a project to
secure funding for the new wel-
The boys were in charge of the
project from the beginning,'' says
principal Maurice Wehu.
They first had to make a pres-
entation to the Riverslea Com-
munity Trust, which operates
from the back of the school, who
were impressed and agreed to
fund the sign. The boys were then
responsible for contacting differ-
ent signwriting companies, get-
ting quotes, and then deciding on
the final design. We're very proud
of them both,'' Mr Rehu says.
Franklin said it had been a
rewarding process, but also a lot
of hard work.
Probably the hardest was mak-
ing the presentation to the trust.
That took a lot of time, says
Frankin. Ihi said he enjoyed the
project from start to finish.
Other Riverslea pupils are still
working on designing a new
school flag as part of the Inquiry
Learning project, based around
one patai nui (big question): How
can we make our school the best
and let people know that
Riverslea School is the best school
in Hastings, Hawke's Bay and
Aotearoa New Zealand?''

Havelock wins regional challenge
Havelock North High School has won the regional
final of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand's 2011
Monetary Policy Challenge (MPC) and will go
through to compete at the national final on
Thursday, August 25.
Competition in the Wellington region was very
strong, with 11 teams vying for the top prize.
Judges praised Havelock North High School for the
high level of comprehension they demonstrated in
their written submission and oral presentation, as
well as their excellent team work.
The presentations focused on key economic
impacts such as the Christchurch earthquakes,
unrest in the Middle East and the dairy boom.
