On Thursday the 30th of April the Year 8’s from the Waitaki Rural Schools travelled to Camp Iona, Herbert. When we arrived we gathered in the Hall and discussed what we were doing over the following two days. We listened to lots of different speakers such as Gary Kircher, Andy Pickles, Suzy Bates and Tony Dudley.
Our favourite parts were the singing with Mr Bokser from Ardgowan School and the games lead by various teachers. The main values we learnt were to use integrity, initiative and respect. Overall all the year 8’s had a great time and are looking forward to more year 8 activities throughout the year.
