Y8 Camp Week

For parents and caregivers of Y8 students in 2018:

While Y7 are at Camp Iona for the week, we will be running a range of activities for Y8. This will include activities here at school as well as away from school. Currently we are looking at visiting the Puketeraki Marae as well as community activities, such as helping clean up the beach. It was decided not to go on the rail trail in 2018 due to the considerable cost involved to parents. The Y8 activities week costs will be kept to a minimum.
