Local Eyes exhibition by students of the
Lyttelton Primary and Governors Bay Schools
These images were chosen by students from Te Kura Tuatahi o Ōhinehou Lyttelton Primary School and Te Kura o Ōhinetahi Governors Bay School. They have an icy Antarctic theme which tells a story of its own, narrated by the children's wonderful commentary. Enjoy the journey to Antarctica!
We like this photo because we get to see the actual sleds that were pulled in Lyttelton and Antarctica. The old houses are interesting.
The husky dogs look happy to be on Quail Island for training, do you think they were allowed off their leads for a paddle?
We like seeing how the horses were on Quail Island where we have been and it still looks the same.
We have seen ships in dry docks just like this one was. The props are interesting how they hold it up while they get it ready for the long journey from Lyttelton to Antarctica.
We chose this photo because we like seeing the dogs and it shows the story of how they went to Antarctica from Lyttelton. We wonder if they were excited.
Look how the dog is curious, peeking out from behind the sailors. They are wearing sailors hats and the dog has fluffy fur so it wouldn't freeze.
This is interesting because it shows lots of the huge sails and how strong and big the olden days ships were.
I like this image because it shows us how we used to use animals to help us in our everyday lives.
I like this image because it shows how even mothers of other species still protect their young.
Many students chose this photo because they were intrigued by the fact that it was covered in snow and almost resembled a rock.
I like this image because I think this is a really cool plane. I’ve never seen a plane with skis instead of wheels and since it looks like a large plane I think it was for transporting supplies to bases but it makes me want to know more about it.
