Eye on the Hive

Start your programme with a 1.5-hour visit to New Zealand’s Parliament – your students will have a chance to experience the buildings first hand, finding out how the nation’s decisions are made, who makes them, and how the media lets you know what’s happening when Parliament is in action.

Then, come to Capital E to experience the second part of Eye on the Hive in a 2.5-hour session working with our imaginative in-house script that mixes politics with fun. Students create their news show that looks at a controversial proposal to ban the internet, with reactions from the Prime Minister and Spokesperson for the Opposition; we meet the candidates for an upcoming swing-seat by-election; a media scrum tackles the issue of changing the voting age, and we have our own Party Political Broadcasts.

This programme will see your students working collaboratively toward a collective outcome, and engaging the following:

English
Making Meaning from Multimedia Digital Production
Listening, Reading, Viewing
Creating Meaning from Multimedia Digital Production
Speaking, Writing, Presenting

Technology 
Designing and Developing Digital Outcomes

The Arts

Programme Costs and How to Book

This is an excellent educational experience: we will definitely do it whenever we come to Wellington. The students loved it.

Teacher, Christchurch

My visit to Capital E was really great. I have many friends who produce music on their computers but I’ve never tried to do so myself. After this session however, I am definitely going to download Sony’s Acid when I get home. Overall great experience and a great teacher.
