By CATHERINE HEALY Sculpture success: Oliver Marquart built a fire extinguisher sculpture. Professionalism was the name of the game this year in Green Bay High School's Year 11 tech- nology class. Teacher Gerald Le Mesurier says he's proud of how students responded to a challeng- ing brief: Find a real cli- ent and create something to improve an area of their business. Karl Messiter, 15, responded to Green Bay High School's need for a 2.4 metre marimba for the music department. The technological knowledge base required to manufacture this piece is spectacular,'' Mr Le Mesurier says. At an exhibition of the students' work last week, musicians proved the piece was working per- fectly by performing for assembled parents and clients. Oliver Marquart worked with Wormald, the fire extinguisher manufacturer, to create a sculpture for their reception area. Oliver communicated with an artist in America who makes sculptures of animals for zoos to learn the techniques he needed,'' Mr Le Mesurier says. I've been teaching for 15 years in Auckland and I've never had work of this quality at year 11 before.'' Other projects on show included a portable cabi- net for a band's audio equipment and a sculp- ture of an alligator for New Lynn confectionery company Mayceys.
