Surf's Up!

Last Wednesday the Pathway to the Podium Hub went out to Waimārama Beach for a surf lesson with Miss Macdonald. We were so lucky to have great conditions. Students had a ball learning to surf and it was great to see most of the girls get up on the board and have a good time. Thanks to Miss Macdonald for her expertise and for Sammie helping out on the day.
