Awakeri School

Room 14 Aongatete Lodge Camp

23 - 26 Feb 2016

Day one of camp and we are orienteering around Katikati. Tayla sits by Barry, with her group Paige, Lia and Brodie surrounding her. Bradley, Iziah and Blake are doing well on their orienteering. This is Dr Joe's mural.
Back at camp we go to the river for a swim. David Laurent is having a splash war with Bradley. Cody Hall is swimming up the rocks.
Day two, we are at Martha Gold Mine. Phil is pointing out things in the mine. There was a big slip last year and the mine is not operating. They are trying to build a different road down into it. Sam has a good look. On the bus, Brodie has the gold that is passed around. Orla has her eyes shining!
Now we're on the train to Waikino. Our conductor Ruby stamps Iziah's arm. Can we break the record for truck and car toots? Bevan and Katie enjoy getting the toots. We got to 22.5, only 2.5 from the record!
Back at camp, the stilts come out. Codi manages pretty well. Gutterboard is suddenly the popular game. Tiaki is about to catch his onesy and win the game.
Look, says Katie, I can balance when I'm blondfolded! Meanwhile, Kate Robbie gets people doing a team building challenge. Alex and Ryann walk along on the planks.
Early evening and Ethan decides to get started on his diary early. Outside Kaleb challenges David Laurent, who often teased people by saying "Do you want to touch the ball?" before he wasted them!
At night is the mock court. There were 12 interesting and entertaining cases! Brodie is a witness. Judges Shane, Paula and Melissa keep everyone on track. Prosecutor Tayla announces the charges. Daniel is on the jury.
There are very funny arguments. Paul Julian fails in his attempt to help the accused Lucy, who ruins things in her defence against killing Bob the bug.
Amber is in the dock. Guilty! Press ups please says the judge. Ethan gets ready to be a witness.
Lucy freaks out at the thought of giving evidence. Not quite as much as when she got stuck way up a tree in the spotlight game at 10pm later that night! Aleisha was accused of sleep talking about a dream involving pancakes and whipped cream!
Bradley was nervous of the water, but he gained a lot of confidence. Here he is jumping off the high diving board! Ryann swims to the side of the river.
Katie is winning this battle on the gladiator pole. Bye Codi! Tiaki hits the water hard, off the slide.
Brodie and Codi battle it out with lots of people waiting their turn. Mr Laurent tries to put Katie off. She looks determined though.
The water tramp and mini blob were popular. Taylor goes for a slide. Alex leaps off the blob platform. 3... 2... 1...

Ethan gets launched into the river.

Finally camp is over and we go home tired and happy.
