Christchurch Stands Tall Project


Paparoa Street School is taking part in the Christchurch Stands Tall Schools Programme.
Christchurch Stand Tall is a mass appeal public art project organized by the United Kingdom organization, Wild in Art.  More than 50 giraffes standing at 2.5 metres tall will be painted by local artists and planted in parks, streets and open spaces.  Christchurch schools will decorate another 50 baby giraffes.  During November through to the end of January giraffes will be out on a trail and in shops in town.Our giraffe arrived and we had to carefully unwrap it.  Each class from Year 2 through to Year 6 had one person represent their class and help with the unwrapping.  We've never seen zoo much bubble wrap and corrugated cardboard.
