Day 1 – A Visit To Rongo University

After a good night’s sleep and a filling breakfast, we squished onto the minibus and headed to Rongo University. We couldn’t meet the Vice Chancellor, but we enjoyed icebreaker and name-learning games with Rongo’s info-coms students. Everyone immediately connected and got along! We also walked the campus a little and passed time playing on the grass! Peter held a seminar for Brighton and Rongo students, dissecting ‘community radio’ and establishing the difficulty in defining ‘community’. We believe it encompasses connection, collaboration, support networks, shared beliefs, benefits and interests, common ground, and a sense of cohesion and togetherness.
We are hoping the radio will facilitate communication, share voices of the community and help to connect members.
This was the first meeting between students since 2019, and we are off to a very good start!
