The best bit about the rafting trip was swimming in the river because we had so much fun. I liked sleeping in the tent. Rickon
I liked bombing off the rock at lunch time. I liked hunting for cicadas in the forest. Lily
I liked swimming in the water and jumping off the rock. Henry
When the school went rafting and stopped at the campsite the adults said we could go into the bush. Henry, Zara, Lily and I found forty cicada skins. I found out they could stick to my clothing. Hunter
I liked when my mum was holding me when I jumped off I made a big bomb. I loved rafting! It was fun when my mum and I went swimming down the rapid. It was fun when my mum and I went down the river in the duckie. The food was delicious! =) Zara
Our school went on a raft trip at river valley lodge, we went on the Rangitikei river. It was very fun when we went swimming and in the mini world pool! Our school and I enjoyed it very much, and we are thankful to the raft guides, our principal and all the parent helpers. Annie.
Our Pukeokahu school raft trip was at River valley lodge. When we had all arrived we got the appropriate river gear and sat down for the safety briefing. Then soon after that it was time to get on the river! For me the highlight of it all was flipping the raft I shared with my sister! As soon as we got to camp we all: Ran, jumped, climbed, collected cicada shells and explored the bush around us. I am looking forward to next time! =) Isla.
On the raft trip Isla and I went on the ducky. On one of the rapids we flipped and I ended up under the ducky. After a bit we went into big-red. Then Miranda and Mrs Casey went into the ducky. Keeva
