The kids had a chance to play with an underwater camera today and had some fun taking candid shots.
What an unbelievable opportunity for the kids. Dive Kaikoura came all the way here to run a Bubblemaker SCUBA course for the senior class. They got to experience the thrill of breathing underwater and learn new skills all in the safety of our pool. The kids had an absolute blast with the common question being "When can we do it again?". I think we may have future SCUBA divers on hand.
What a great way to spend the afternoon! Rotoiti Lodge Outdoor Education Centre took the Senior Class for a paddleboarding experience on the lake this afternoon. After a few wobbly starts the kids were up and away getting the hang of standing and paddling. Of course then the fun really began as the kids were given challenges such as sitting at the very front or back of their board and trying to paddle, making a paddleboard stack and walking the plank.
A big hit was the Big Tahuna paddleboard - yes it is possible to get the entire (15 kids) senior class on to it. Moving it while standing on it was asking a bit much!
Thank you Anita, Alex and Ben from the Rotoiti Lodge for your time and enthusiasm with the kids, it was an awesome experience.
Welcome back to school for 2021. We're looking forward to a great year and have some fantastic activities planned. While the weather is good this term we'll be spending as much time as possible in the swimming pool and enjoying our new lane ropes (thank you Alan Basalaj).
Thursday evenings from 6pm you can find most of us down at the lake for sailing. Bring some meat and bread for the bbq and come and enjoy a nice casual evening by the lake.
We'll be keeping our calendar on our Up and Coming Events page updated as well as keep you informed through SchoolStream of what's happening at school.
