Make it work – Project

Kia ora everyone, This term for our theme it was make it work. Team 5 were told to build something that could help or change our school for the better. My group decided to make a bench because we did not have enough seating area for our school. But instead change of plans we were told that we did not have enough money which we did but its okay because we made a model version of a bench. I’m feeling very angry and sad because who will sit on our small little bench nobody!! right so it might as well go to someone who likes playing with dolls so instead of it being our seating area it can be the dolls seating area!. Anyways i need to be positive and clear that out of my mind because at the end of the day it was fun to make it with my group, we had lots of ups and downs but it was still very fun. Hope you have enjoyed our movie that we made 🙂

Facts – Kate Sheppard

Kate sheppard’s real name is Katherine wilson malcolm. She was born on March 10, 1847, in Liverpool, England. She was raised and educated in Scotland and then moved to New Zealand in the late 1860s.  Kate Sheppard became involved in the social issues of the day. She believed that women should participate in all aspects of society, including politics. She also encouraged women to take part in activities like riding bicycles, sports, and other physical activities. 

Sheppard joined the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union in 1885. Two years later she became the leader of the union’s suffrage campaign (suffrage is the right to vote). In 1909 she was elected as a vice-president of the International Council of Women. Sheppard later became involved in women’s suffrage movements in other countries, including England and the United States. 

In 1896 Sheppard helped set up the National Council of Women (NCW) and became its first president. She supported equality in marriage and the right of women to run for positions in Government. She stepped down from the NCW presidency in 1903. However, she remained an important person in the women’s rights movement. Sheppard died on July 13, 1934, in Christchurch, New Zealand. Her image still appears on the New Zealand $10 note
