“Tamaki Primary students all hover around the Disappearing Gun to take a school selfie! What a blast they had!”
Wednesday the 12 of March, 2014, students and teachers who attend Tamaki Primary School got to experience face to face, artifacts which were used in war. Multiple students described the trip as if they had never had fun before! Students and teachers travelled by bus, ferry and foot. Other students thought that it was like running up and down the stairs about 20 times!
Tamaki Primary students, teachers and some people from the public boarded the ferry and drove over the Waitemata Harbour, on the way to North Head! Year 7 student Maopa Tupouhia said “It was my first time ever on a boat and I loved every second of it! I really want to do this again!” After everyone calmed down and their hearts stopped beating a hundred times, it was time to hop off the ferry. Everyone got off the ferry and waved good bye to the drivers and the rest of the people that were still on the ferry. Malia pointed “I was scared to go on the ferry at first, but at the end of the day, I had so much fun and it was nice exploring North Head!” Everyone who attended the trip all got ready to set off for the long journey to North Head. Year 7 student from Room 8 Mehi Ake said “although it was tiring, the overall experience was amazing and it sure will help me with my work this term!” Everyone gathered together for the long, tiring, relevant walk. Kelly O'Rourke said, “Even though it was exhausting walking up the mountain, it was a good experience to explore North Head!”
They’ll be sure to do it again sometime!
