School Camp to Bannockburn Nov 2014 - 4th Dec 2014

We have just returned from a wonderful week long camp in Bannockburn where we enjoyed lovely weather and an amazing array of activities, from confidence course activities to hiking, biking and swimming. The children had a marvellous time and it was so nice to have so many parents join us on camp. It really makes our camps rather unique. It is great for the children to spend time with their parents and the extended school whanau in such a nice environment outside of the school. We also learnt plenty about gold and the effects the gold rush had on Central Otago. The evidence was stark in the Bannockburn sluicings, an extraordinary place. We also went to Arrowtown and tried our luck with gold panning, and we were introduced to a metal detector as well, but alas, even that clever device couldn’t find a gold deposit for us! Thanks very much to Bendigo Valley Charitable Trust for their kind grant to assist with camp costs.
