Mansfield Trip


Mansfield Whānau were lucky enough to participate in the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple's '3G4G Festival of Cultural Sharing.' 

This educational program delivers the message of 3G4G to the students, which blends in very well with Howick Intermediate School’s core values. In addition, students got to learn about mindfulness meditation and diversity.  

They focused on three acts of goodness, Do Good Deeds, Say Good Words, and Think Good Thoughts, and the four givings that were Giving others Confidence, Joy, Hope, and Convenience.

The trip gave them the opportunity to learn about Chinese culture and the New Zealand Police Force taught the students how to make good choices.   Afterward, they shared some traditional Chinese cuisine.

We would like to thank the temple for the amazing experience.
