We’re thrilled about the great feedback we have got from teachers, parents and students in previous years. 

“All the kids had great fun creating their entries. They loved how creative they could be. We had lots of great conversations about animals, ethics and sustainability.” Christine from Sunnyhills School

“It’s been incredible for our school as they really celebrate our students’ success … and overall the culture created during that period was massive and a huge boost to School Spirit when we beat much larger schools … hopefully it’s challenged their perceptions and views they might have previously had.” Llanyon Joe from Putaruru College 

Some comments from the students

I learned all about what happens to animals and I know it is real, happening in New Zealand and needs to be fixed. I am now going to keep speaking up for them. Hope from St Joseph’s School, Pukekohe 

Our mural is currently being shown on our classroom wall. We would like to think that our fellow classmates now know more about animal cruelty due to the facts displayed on the poster. Georgia and Olivia from Hastings Girls High School
