Rafting Trip

After waiting nearly a year, we FINALLY got to enjoy our rafting trip today!  Earlier in the year, we won a fantastic prize which meant we were able to go rafting for free.  Today was worth the wait - we had the most awesomely cool day with the Mangaweka Adventure Company.  The rafting was peaceful, scenic and fun... with a MASSIVE, bumpy rapid in the middle.  The water was beautiful and warm, so everyone enjoyed a swim too.  Thank you to MAC and Horizons Regional Council for allowing us to enjoy such a great day.  Thank you to the parents who came along today too - you were awesome!

  7. It was a really fun time out and having a day off school. There was one time I almost fell out of the raft on, the gaping jaws of death wave. My favourite part of the day was going for a swim in the nice and cold water. Thanks for the day out.
