On Wednesday the 14th my huia class went the Coronation Lodge for our Something for Nothing project to see the people there and give them someone to talk to and something to do for the afternoon. I’m pretty sure that everyone enjoyed it, even if they were a bit nervous.
The people at the rest home were happy to see us and we were happy to see them. I hope they enjoyed us visiting and had a bit of a laugh.

Overall, I had a good time and it was a new experience for me. I realize what it meant to the ladies and gentlemen we visited and started focusing on them, not myself, so that they would enjoy it more. I'm not sure if it came off like that, but my intentions were there.

The trip to Coronation lodge was a privilege, and it was great to sit down and have a yarn and a bite to eat. We are glad we as a group got to come down and spend the afternoon with you guys.
Luke, Riley and Ethan

My time at the Coronation Lodge was one of the most enjoyable experiences. I learnt many things that I previously did not know, such as learning about the resident’s past life, which was intriguing and interesting.

The rest home visit was good, but talking wasn’t my thing. My favourite thing was the food and drinks.

My favourite thing about Coronation Lodge was the fact that everyone there was so nice and friendly. I also quite enjoyed hearing about their upbringing and what they did as a child and what life was like when they went to school.

It was awesome to hear about a small part of someone’s history and get a small glimpse into the past. Hearing about your kids, your hometown and how things have changed over the years was as much fun for me as I hope it was for you to talk about it.

I had a great time at Coronation lodge. I always enjoy getting to know others and especially people that have a long life of stories under their belts. It was a great experience for all the boys. A lot of them were sceptical coming in, but their moods quickly changed. Walking back to school afterwards was a joy hearing all the boys sharing the stories the residents from Coronation Lodge told them. I think they appreciated it a lot more than they expected to, and I anticipate that they will be more confident in the future to talk to others.
Ethan [Huia Leader]

I was really proud of my boys. Some of them were very nervous before coming in. They are not used to making conversation with people they don’t know, without their phones and devices! But they all took a deep breath and gave it a go. On the way back to school, there were lots of smiles. Even the shy ones who didn’t say much, felt happy that they had made the effort. [Even the one whose favourite part was the food and drink!]
Then, of course, there was Ethan, my Huia Leader who organised the visit, and Cooper another yr 13 lad, who were just naturals, happily chatting with everyone.
Thanks for having us!
