Last week on tuesday the year 6 children at Pt England school went to Kawau Island. We got split up into eight groups but 2 groups were named the same and just had A and B at the end. So there were actually 4 groups. There are lots of activities and traditions for PES when we go to Kawau.
One of the traditions are that every year all the groups do a special item and there are 2 judges picking who comes 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th. My group did a very short item which the judges didn't really like. So Kats (My team) came 4th, Kawau came 3rd, Mansion came 2nd and Benson came 1st.
Confidence course was my favourite activity because it was pretty easy. It was called the con course or confidence course because it was to show how confident you were. All you had to do was make your way over a obstacle or past it. Ohh yeah I even got a prize for being the best girl to do it, the prize was chocolate.
My second favourite activity was abseiling. Just so you were wondering it is NOT sailing in a boat it is going up a wall then down it. This was my second favourite because I liked it when we came down the wall the tips we got were to lower your self like a jaw bridge. I was the only one who put thumb to bum in my group, thumb to bum is to help you when you want to stop coming down the wall and to have a little rest.
If I had the opportunity to go back I would. So you should go to Kawau.
