Senior Room Trip had a fun challenging afternoon at Wincorp Adventures in Pauanui ending with a flying fox ride. If parents would like to view the 5 min movie you can check it out on our website. Another challenge was to transfer the entire group from one side of the pond to the other side using only 5 planks, and without falling in.

The Seniors at Wincorp ready to tackle the confidence course.

 Junior Room Trip – had loads of fun on camp too. First stop was a bush walk in Kauranga Valley to see a model dam. Then off  to Miranda Holiday Park for a swim in their lovely hot pools. The children played on the playground in the afternoon, which developed into a fun pyjama party. The next day everyone went for a walk along the Rail trail in Thames, and were lucky enough to get a bonus train ride. Thanks Lloyd for giving them a donation so we could have that ride!

Walk Through Christmas
I went to the walk through Christmas and we went to three
different churches. The last church was fun because we got to play instruments and after the last church we got two biscuits each and two drinks each. But some had one. In the second church I saw a pony called Coco, it was so cute.
