On Fridays year 8's have leadership time, learning skills and team work. To finish off this term we got into different groups to plan and construct a kite that could fly. We all worked really well as a team and most groups got their kites airborne. We learn new skills and find out something new about ourselves everytime we work in different groups.

As the term comes to an end we have completed our last activity with Topec. What amazing life saving skills we learn around river safety and low ropes. Some of us pushed ourselves out of our comfort zones and were rewarded with achieving a new skill while having fun.

To round off our snorkeling skills and experience marine life we went snorkeling at Ngamotu Beach. We were lucky to sight some bait fish, interesting kelp, kina, stars plus more. We were lucky to have great parent support. Big thank you to EMR and Denise, Mike and Dave from Department of Conservation to make this happen.

Our annual beach clean up day turned out sunny, what a day! We walked to Ahu Ahu to look for any rubbish, which fortunately not a lot was found, so good news. We then returned along the beach to Corbett Park where we enjoyed mixing with the rest of the school and enjoying a dip in the river, what a fun, enjoyable day.
