Year 12 History investigates Waves of Immigration to Banks Peninsula

The Year 12 History class ventured to the tip of Ōnawe Peninsula in Akaroa Harbour.  They were aiming  to understand the 1832 massacre of the Ngāi Tahu pa by Ngāti Toa chief Te Rauparaha. 

They also toured around the harbour learning about industry, waves of immigration and key personalities. 

Pictures show the Stargazer huts at Ōnuku Farm Hostel, students skimming stones at Birdlings Flat, a model on Ōnawe Pa, a bust of local chief called Tangatahara and the students atop Ōnawe.
