What a dramatic day it was! Great excitement was caused even before we had left Opua with our bus being unable to get onto the Okiato ferry! The children dealt with this unexpected event very well indeed, despite all having to file off the bus to lighten it, and have an extra paragraph to add into their descriptive writing about their day’s experiences!

We had to go to a quickly designed alternative plan and we ended up at Bayly’s Beach which turned out to be very giving and a wonderful back up. Many, many thanks to all the parents and caregivers who came along to help. Without you, this event would be impossible to put on. You are all very much appreciated. My thanks also to the teachers who attended and put it such effort to make a challenging and eventful day very worthwhile for the children and their learning!
