During week four of Term 1 all 250+ Year 7 children had the opportunity to participate in our 2022 EOTC programme. They sailed at Lake Rua and experienced river crossing at the Groynes. It was great to see a number of students step out of their comfort zone, challenge themselves and try new things. They showed great commitment and definitely embraced the challenge. We were very lucky with the weather this year as all trips went ahead as scheduled. 

Here are some reflections from the children about their experiences:

Showing the CSKI values at sailing/river crossing …
Aim High: I was aiming high by trying something new and trying to do it as well as I could.
Commitment: I showed commitment by getting in the boat and giving it a go even though I had never been in a boat before.

Support: I was showing support by helping my friends float down the river together.

Koha: I was really grateful that we got to go on the trips as they might have been cancelled due to covid.

Integrity: I showed integrity by trying something new and being respectful to the teachers, instructors and parents.


A big thank you to all the parents/caregivers that helped out during the week of EOTC. Without your support events like these would not happen.
