Ski Trip

Members of Room 2 headed up to Whakapapa Ski Fields on the weekend for a go at Skiing and Boarding.  What a great weekend.  By the Sunday afternoon everyone in the group had learnt either to ski or snowboard.  We were very lucky with the fabulous weather.  A BIG thank you to the parents who came along to help.  

Great Fun had by all.

Mud Run

What a fantastic day Room 2 had last Friday at the Rotorua School Mud Run event.  Much to the children's disappointment there was not as much mud as they would have like but none the less they all went out and found some to get covered in.

A quick wash down at the cars then it was off for a more in depth clean at the Rotorua Aquatic Center.  A great day had by all.
