Milolii students to host season premiere of Hiki No


Students from the Milolii Hipuu Virtual Academy of Kua o ka La Public Charter School will host the season premiere of PBS Hawaii’s student news program Hiko No at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 9.

Milolii, the remote fishing village on Hawaii Island’s southwestern shore, was the site of a training session back in March. Teachers and students learned video production and storytelling techniques from PBS Hawaii’s Hiki No staff.

This episode is the first in the 2014-2015 school year.

The top story, from Aliamanu Middle School students on Oahu, covers an event featuring global peace leaders Desmond Tutu, Gro Harlem Bruntland and Hina Jilani.

The Aug. 30 event gave students the opportunity to hear from and interact with the three representatives from The Elders, a group that works collectively for peace and human rights.

Aliamanu students also interviewed The Elders, inspiring reflections on what the middle schoolers learned and about their hopes for the future.

The event was sponsored by Pillars of Peace Hawaii, an initiative of Hawaii Community Foundation.
