Camping out

by Anonymous Author

Poor weather was no deterrent to the West Melton School children having some fun when they went on their annual school camp recently.

Year 4 children headed to Woodend for their camp while Year 5 and 6 children went to Wainui Camp as part of the school’s outdoor education programme. School promotions officer Rita Spadoni said camp is always eagerly anticipated by the children. “Part of the excitement is trying out new activities they may not otherwise get a chance to do,” she said.

Among the activities the children took part in were, orienteering, archery, go-carting and high ropes.
