Woodend Camp - Day One

Despite the rain (and tiniest drop of snow), camp got off to a great start. The walk was delayed, but camp booklets and some team building happened instead.

A great bus trip to camp and then it was time to find our cabins, set up our beds, eat lunch and get into our activity groups for Go Carting and Flying Fox/Zip Line. Everyone was super brave and gave everything their best, entering the learning pit and challenging themselves. Ka pai tamariki.

Finally, it was dinner (Nachos, yum!) and then a movie in the games room. It involved a blue bird, can you guess what it was? And then sleeping like babies (That's right Mrs Taylor and Mrs Spragg were up every 2 hours ;) ) 


  1. WooHoo Rimu :) Man, you are just having THE best time on camp! What a blast, can't wait to catch up with you and find out about the rest of the adventures! Keep warm and see you soon guys - Mrs T :)

  4. Kia Ora Rimu Class,
    Wow, you did all of those things? So you watched a movie, ate nacho's, drove a race car, relax, colouring in, flying fox, zip line AND you got to sleep in a cabin? Now that's what I call fun. I would totally go there if I had the chance.

  6. Hola Rimu Class,
    My name is Bella and I am a year 6 student who attends to Papakura Central School. I can't believe you did all those things, like watching a movie and zip lining. You guys are so lucky! I wish our end of the year senior school camp would be like this! I would definitely go there if I could. I like how you had pictures and then a bit of writing to tell what you did. What was one activity you guys all enjoyed the most?
    Blog you Later,

  7. Kia ora My name is Faith. I am a student at Waikowhai Primary school. You guys looked liked you had heaps of fun swimming going on those trampolines. I really love the photos of you guys going on the slides and swimming. That reminds me when we went to Cameron pools. Maybe next time you could talk more about your trip instead of showing all the photos but the photos looked like it was so fun. If you want you can check my blog out here's the link keep up the good blogging.

  8. Aloha Rimu Class. My name is Lavinia from Waikowhai Primary School. I am in Hauraki with the best teacher called Ms Sands and the best teacher that helps her named Mr Kim. I really like how you guys had an awesome trip!!!! I can't believe you guys really did all those things as a trip. I think you are really lucky. What you could think of next time, you could maybe write a reflection of the trip. Other than that, it was awesome!! If you would like to check out my blog here is the site, I can't wait to see more of your work. Catch ya Later Bloggers!!!

  9. Hi Rimu class, my name is Dazharn from Waikowhai Primary school. I am year six and my class is room 9. I like all the photos that made me jealous and made me want to go go carting as well. One thing you could change is to have less photos because there were to many and it took to long to scroll down. Please come check out my blog at Blog you later.

  10. Kia ora My name is Conrad and I am a student at Waikowhai Primary School in Hauraki class. You guys look liked you had so much fun driving go karts and on flying fox/zip line. I really like you photos and how you explained what you were doing. I think that you could work on adding more information about what you did. If you would like to see my learning here is my blog.
