Here's a slideshow of more people having fun and also some nature shots. We have seen some squrrels but haven't managed to capture them on film yet!
We started the day with some orienteering around the grounds. Using the maps was a great way to help us get to know where everything is and finding some of the objects was quite a challenge. We had a competiton to see who could find most points and the result ended up very close. Razzle Dazzle were the eventual winners so well done Ryan, Ruth and Robert! Is it something to do with the letter R?
The groups were split for afternoon activities with groups 1 & 2 tackling the silver maze and group 3 on the zipwire and adventure course.
The zipwire is really high and a bit daunting but our guys were great and rose to the challenge as you would expect! Some adults even had a go!(Conversation between Camron and Mrs McRae -
Camron:I want to hear you scream.
Mrs McRae: Why would I scream?
Camron: Because that's what old people do!
I hope he meant adults!)
Adam and his dad had a shot too so we are all proud of each other tonight.
The Adventure course has lots of ropes, nets and tunnels to tackle and is great fun. Here's Emma emerging from a tunnel.The silver maze group had great fun tackling their problem solving challenges and some ended up quite muddy! Ms Rosie had a problem holding on to her shoes and will definitely need to get the cleaning stuff out tonight!
Again everyone was very engaged with the activity and proved they able to meet any challenge although Kayleigh says that the Mission Impossible is Impossible! She advises anyone trying it to wear old clothes and shoes!
Everyone had a quick swim before tea and are now having some well earned free time - I guess it's footie again for some! Others are enjoying the air hockey, table football and pool as well. It's great to be able to meet pupils form the other school and make some new friends too.
Check out this fabulous photo Mrs Bunning took of Adam coming out of a tunnel!
