Last week, Ruru and the year 6`s from Piwakawaka Learning Spaces went to Camp at Kokako Lodge in the Hunua Rangers. It was definitely a great oppurtunity for the students to push their boundries and step outside their comfort zone. Our favourite activity was the High Ropes. It built up our confidence and challenged us a lot. Some of the other activities we did were Kayaking, Abseiling, Raft building, Archery and Orienteering. On the first day we did the Hunua Hunt which was basically a 5 hour tramp. The only difference was along the way we had to find fifty places and mark them on a map. At night there were three different activities which were the Gloworm Walk, Burma Trail and Spotlight. These activities were also much enjoyed by the students. We would like to thank the parents for cooking the meals, supervising us at all times, transporting and making camp much more enjoyable.
