Camp Calamity!

Wow! What a week!

The Year 5’s spent a week exploring the Outdoors – from mountain biking to rock pools they all spent time investigating our environment, working as a team, and challenging themselves. Thanks to all the parents for their help and support!

The Year 6’s spent a wonderful week at Camp Columba, Pukerau! What an experience for both myself and the children. From abseiling, to the horizontal bungy, a waterslide in chilly conditions and ice skating, we all persisted, challenged and extended ourselves. Highlight would definitely be the mud fight RUBYJANE!!!! And the ‘It’s in the Bag’ Night – not to mention the auction held on the bus! A HUGE thank you to Karen Cracknell (Worm), Warren Leith, Tracey Maclennan (Yodeller), Stan Tiatia, Sue Flett, Jenny Stewart (Kitchen Legend), Craig Thompson, Rob Peterson, Randall Milne and John Conner for all your hard work, sleepless nights, and humor you bought to camp. We all really appreciate it! And thank you to all the Year 6 children who were well behaved, polite and funny! Thank you for challenging yourselves, persisting and making camp sooo enjoyable!

Keep an eye out for the Camp Evening – date to be confirmed! We will pass on a CD of photos to you all as well.

And now back to reality…ERO next week too!

Enjoy your week
