The week leading up to Easter, Waipara School children - Riley, Lily-Rose, Ashima and Aria - headed to the Boyle River Outdoor Education Centre to join with children from both Hanmer Springs and Waikari Schools to learn about leadership together. The group was accompanied by Peter Kay, Yvonne Blair, Malin Stone and myself. The children were involved in daily challenges to test themselves in problem solving and leadership activities. The days were jam packed with things to do, meeting new comrades along the way. We will meet together again late Term Three to discuss how we have used our leadership learnings with our peers and the other children in our schools.
On camp, the weather was gorgeous, apart from the sandflies!
