Year 8 Winter Camp
Year 8 students recently enjoyed a fantastic week of activities down at Mt Ruapehu and the surrounding area. The camp consisted of a day rafting and climbing in Turangi, followed by two days of skiing or snowboarding up at the Whakapapa ski field on Mt Ruapehu.
The pupils were challenged at every step of the way to show leadership and develop a greater sense of independence. They responded brilliantly and whether battling the elements to get up to the mountain or simply forming groups to complete construction challenges, their grit and determination, as well as their thoughtful and kind approach, was frequently commented on by the staff of our partner organisations.
