Shirley Intermediate School

Shirley Intermediate SchoolTTCF funding enabled 171 children to attend a camp in Dunedin, giving them a much needed break from life in some of the worst affected areas of Eastern Christchurch after the earthquakes.

Many of the children’s families lost jobs and homes, while at the same time struggling without water and sewerage.

A TTCF grant enabled the children to get away from their ravaged city and travel by bus to Dunedin where they visited the albatross colony on the Otago Peninsula, learnt how to make chocolate at the Cadbury’s Factory, and visited Olveston House to gain insights about life in colonial New Zealand.
