"We visited the Sculptureum last November and enjoyed a fantastic school trip that included a walk around the gardens and galleries, a scavenger hunt, and a rock/tile painting activity. The teachers and students involved had an amazing time and we thought it was a perfect trip for the students at our school.
 We discovered so much potential during our last trip to stimulate writing responses that could be used for students completing NCEA writing standards with us… there’s so much our students could explore to generate wonderful creative and formal writing in response. ”
