Pukeko Echo Television

Pukeko Echo Television is the school based media project which produces the children's show: Pukeko Echo.
This show is created by the children, about the children and for the children! Film crews made up of students
from Manaia View School play a key role - a role which includes all aspects of media production. These include everything from researching film segments, script writing, filming, lighting, presenting, sound production and editing.

Pukeko Echo includes a range of regular segments as well as interesting new extras. These regular segments include fitness, healthy cooking, crafts, te reo, science, jokes plus many more. Other school in the Whangarei area also contribute footage about what is happening in their school, trips etc.

Pukeko Echo can be viewed on Channel North, our local regional tv station which is based at Manaia View School. The 1st December, 2011 saw Channel North go digital terrestrial. Prior to this Ultra Fast Broadband was installed at our school making "on demand" via Channel North's website a reality. The biggest plus has been the increased access and extension of our audience, providing our students to have a true voice via Pukeko Echo.

Channel North
Channel North which is Whangarei's regional television station, is overseen by Northland Television Trust.
