   At the end of last term 20 eager Year 10 students spent a week in Tongariro at the Hillary Outdoors Centre.  This was an amazing opportunity made possible by the generosity of Foundation North and the Lion Foundation.

One of the girls who attended the camp writes:  "This camp really helped me to build new friendships and to work as a member of a team.  I conquered my fears and went on the flying fox that dangles above the Mangatepopo river.  We trekked uphill through the bush climbing a couple of rock walls on the way, we squeezed into tiny spaces when we went to the Okpata Caves where the glow worms were amazing to see.  Kayaking and swimming in Lake Taupo were also highlights.  My group also did an overnight hike in the bush, we carried 15kg packs with our tents, food and everything we needed for a night in the bush.   I think in total we walked 23 kms that day. "

Although tough at times this was a wonderful experience that I know we will all remember for a very long time.  IMG 1524 Large
