EOTC Day 2 - Skating and Bowling

This morning we went ice skating. We had some free time as well as a lesson on how to skate properly. Some of us took up the limbo challenge!
That was followed by bowling...

Education Outside The Classroom Day 1 - Indoor Rock Climbing

Today we went to an indoor rock climbing centre for the day. 
There were a whole range of walls to climb, from the easy to the very challenging. 
We not only developed our skills in climbing but also in peer support and encouragement to achieve the best that we could.

EOTC Preparation

Next week our Year 7s are going to camp at Totara Springs near Matamata. The Year 8s will be going sailing, rock climbing, ice skating and ten pin bowling.
Here are the Year 8s doing some team building exercises.
The first was to all sit in a circle on each other's laps. Olivia from our home group and Angela from Homegroup 3 did a great job organising.
Next we had to untangle ourselves from knots made by joining hands.
