About Us - We are Hillcrest Normal School!
We are a fabulous school of 600 students from Years 0 (new entrants- 5 years old ) -6 in Hamilton, New Zealand.
Our wonderful Year 6 class of Room 7 have decided to enter the Great Virtual Walk Competition. We are a group of 32 9-11 year old's from over 10 different nationalities.
This website records our Virtual Walking Journey of one of New Zealand's Great Walks- Lake Waikaremoana, and our learning around Conservation and Sustainability.You will find observations, reports and student reflections of our journeys.
The aim of entering this competition is to learn about our special NZ and appreciate the wonderful place we live. We also want to involve our families in our learning.
The Reflection section is a summary of our Journey for the Competition Judges.
We hope you enjoy our recordings! Every student in room 7 has had the chance to write on this website, choose photos and post their scanned work.
