Auckland’s Kadimah School has won a national competition organised by Crown Relocations calling on children to independently produce a 90 second video about what they would do if they won $4,00o.

The $4,000 is to be used to help fund a sustainable project.

The Year 6 children created a video about their ambitious plans to establish beehives on the school roof and to plant flowers to attract the bees.

Kadimah, New Zealand’s only jewish day school is located in the heart of the city’s  CBD  making it a unique ambition.

The plan calls for the sale of the honey creating a commercial/entrepreneurial aspect to the project.

The school’s Chair, Denise Cohen, told J-Wire: “There’s a strong link with Judaism also.

Thank you so much for all you did to support us! We won! Our work is long-lasting, sustainable, and Jewish from its roots to its tips.”
 
School principal Kerry Jenner added: “It was truly a community effort lifting us to this height. Huge appreciation to each member of the Year 6 class, and their teacher Leisha Horwood.
We rise together as a school, and as members of our communities when an event like this happens.
Watch this space…it’s called Kadimah has talent, in so many ways!!!
 
Todah rabah, kia ora and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
