Baradene College students Olivia Mendonca and Genevieve Bowler with the Governor-General of New Zealand, Sir Jerry Mateparae,
The Queen Elizabeth II Pukeahu Education Centre at Pukeahu National War Memorial Park was opened in Wellington with the Shared Histories project by Baradene College of the Sacred Heart in Auckland and the French school Lycée Professionnel Jean Macé, in Chauny, France on display. The centre is the birthday gift from New Zealand to Queen Elizabeth. We were very pleased that the opening exhibition has our Shared Histories project being displayed. This is a great end for our project, which will be housed here for students to do research using our exhibition posters and the book that students published.
The Governor-General, Sir Jerry Mateparae, the Prime Minister John Key, the Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage Maggie Barry and the Minister of Defense Gerry Brownlee opened the building. They spent time talking to the students and looking at the exhibition posters in the exhibition.
