Year 12 Tama Cunningham spoke of his identity and his turangawaewae.
Beckenham School year 8 Lucy Gray, who is one of Cashmere High’s year 9 leadership scholarship winners for 2020 also spoke. Lucy is a co-convener of the New Zealand School Strike for Climate Change. She gave an account of the need for youth actions against climate change.
The key organiser of the event was former Cashmere High student Hannah Hudson, the school’s dux for 2018.
Anzac Gallate’s, Cashmere High’s head boy last year, also played a role in making the event possible. Anzac and Hannah ran a mini TedXYouth event last year and the success of this enabled permission for this year’s event.
A number of Cashmere High students were in the audience.
