The Rapaki Challenge

My Outdoor Ed group today...

What a brilliant, encouraging, and supportive diverse group of young people!

I loved spending the afternoon with these cool kids.  We were the only group who completed the full Rapaki Challenge with heavy gear in tow, ensuring the load was shared equally with everyone. They were determined to make it to the top with no complaining...but possibly a few sore backs and legs tomorrow! Outdoor Ed is a wonderful opportunity to develop the values of caring and personal best.

You had to be there to share an insight into the banter and heart warming conversations and interactions we had along the way.  Learning and working together that is just as valuable as pen to paper and extra curricular activities.

What a blessing our jobs as teachers are, to offer a range of opportunities that bring out the best in our future generations.

Thank you, Mr P for all your work in organising these events.

More awesome book reviews
