Level 1 PE

The Level 1 PE classes spent three days at the Guthrie Smith Education Centre last week. The focus was on interpersonal skills and how these were displayed in a variety of challenging team activities. We also spent a morning volunteering in the Arboretum helping with the clean-up after Cyclone Gabrielle. An awesome few days with some awesome students.

Great Outdoors Hub Trip

This week our Exploring the Great Outdoors Hubs combined to spent four days at Mangatepopo Camp, in the Tongariro National Park. The focus of the trip was to explore the alpine region, examining the different ecosystems, learn how to survive in the different weather extremes and do the different activities that were available in that area. They had heaps of fun and learnt a lot. They had amazing weather for tramping, swimming, sledding, snow fighting and building awesome relationships.
