The concert band students from Papatoetoe Intermediate have been out and about recently.

On Friday 30 August they visited Refugees As Survivors – New Zealand (RASNZ), a refugee settlement centre in Mangere. As well as performing for families who were very recent arrivals to New Zealand, our students gained knowledge and insight into what it is to be a refugee.

This was a humbling and enlightening experience for our students, and we look forward to a continued relationship with this wonderful organisation.
