At Pahiatua School students are given a range of opportunities to take part in education outside of the classroom. We compete in a range of different events such as sports events, Bush tournaments, Camps etc. Come and have a look at the different things we get up to.
YEAR 5/6 CAMP
Akitio Camp (Recount by Chase Field)
On the 19th of March the year 5 & 6 students of Pahiatua School went on a trip to Akitio Beach.
First we loaded the bus with the suitcases and then we got onto the bus. Some of us went in the minivan and some with their parents. We sang on the way there.
When we got to Akitio we set up our cabins and then we had lunch on the beach, it was great. After we played on the beach we made huts, played rugby and even tennis. After that a local lady called Muriel came along and told us about the history of Akitio and the Palaedis ship wreck. The community hall had the bell and the wheel from the wreck. She then took us for a walk to the boat club.
Then we had afternoon tea and some of us went fishing I caught two fish, a herring and a kahwai.
After that we had dinner of minc,e nachos and coleslaw. Finally we had supper. It was a milo and two bits of cake. We went and set up our beds and talked for a while and then Mrs Huddleston came in and turned off the lights and said we could talk for ten minutes.
In the morning they said we were leaving because the weather was bad. We played for a bit and then we watched a movie. It was the Pacifier. We had a sandwich and two more bits of food. Then we packed the bus and left to go to the Dannevirke Wai Splash indoor heated pools. We were there for about two hours and then we went home. When we got to Pahiatua we unloaded the bus and went home.
Overall camp was enjoyable and my favourite part was fishing!
YOUNG FARMERS CLUB AGRI-KIDS
On Saturday 10 March Pahiatua School entered two teams into the East Coast Regional Final Agri-Kids. Six students were selected from Rooms 7, 8 and 9. We traveled down to Carterton and competed against 20 other teams. In the prelims we had to complete 8 different modules. These ranged from First Aide, motorbike safety, general knowledge questions, fencing planting a garden and even sorting out the insides of a cow. Unfortunately neither of the teams made it into the Race off at the end, but we had a lot of fun and worked well as a team. Have a look at the photos of us competing in the different modules.
