Every three years an elected Mayor and councillors are put into positions of power by the voters in our area. They collectively make decisions for the Rotorua District.
In this programme students will learn about the democratic processes used by local government.
They will participate in discussions and hands-on activities using items from the museum image and object collections that give them a clear understanding of council roles, accountability and responsibilities.
