Muriwai Beach Sleepover for Year 6 Students
Each year we provide an opportunity for our Year 6 students to visit Muriwai Beach.
The Purpose of going to Muriwai is to
- visit the Gannet Colony
- develop an appreciation of God’s creation
- learn about safety at a surf beach
The sleepover at Arataki is an annual event for Year 4 students.
It takes place in term four when the weather is hopefully starting to warm up.
The focus for this outdoor learning experience is New Zealand bush with emphasis on what lives in the bush, conservation, safety and survival.
The sleepover is organised by the Year four class teachers with a small group of parents helping with the supervising and cooking.
The programme is delivered by well qualified park rangers who have a passion for our environment.
