On an early morning in September, the children and parents of Pukeokahu travelled to Whakapapa ski field, on Mt Ruapehu. We went straight to ski hire and grabbed the gear we needed. Our first stop was the learner’s slope for a quick practise while we were waiting for our instructors. Then we were split into two groups and went with our instructors for our lesson. We learnt lots. When we got cold we went to the cafe for a hot drink and food to warm up.
After we had finished skiing we climbed up to the Rotorua Ski hut, carrying our bags, and met the class from Birkdale school that was staying there too. Dinner was hot and SPICY, but really delicious. Dessert was waffles, maple syrup and ice cream.
Once we had eaten dessert we all relaxed in the lounge, Birkdale school invited us to join them in a game of charades.
After a good nights sleep, we packed up our bags and headed back to Ohakune for lunch and then off to do some rock climbing. That was a really fun experience.
This ski trip was epic. Thanks Mrs Casey and parents.
