Year 7 End of Year Activities

By Alysha Brown

On the 7th of December, a group of 70 year 7s and staff headed off on their first adventure of activity week. This kicked off with a ride to the top of Mount Parihaka and a tramp down to the aquatic centre. The students enjoyed two hours in the pool and hydro slide. Day 2, we arrived at The Adventure Forest, just north of Whangarei. The group was suited and booted, with helmets and harnesses, and made their way through various stages of courses. Each course increased in height and difficulty. These were filled with zip lines, climbing apparatus and acrobatics. Day 3, was jam-packed with six rotations. This included pool activities, robot operation, Day of the Dead Mexican mask making, cupcake icing and decoration, archery and target shooting. It was a wonderful way to send off our year 7s as they enjoy a summer vacation before embarking on their year 8 schooling. A big thank you to all of the parents who offered up their help, and those who assisted us on the three days.
