Outdoor Ed adventures at Goat Island

By Kathleen Beckett
HOD PE & Health

On Wednesday 9 March, the 13 Outdoor Ed class ventured North on their first full day excursion for the year. We went to the lovely Goat Island and Whangateau to do some snorkelling and appreciate our wonderful Marine Reserve and nature.

While we had a great day for it, our visibility at Goat Island wasn’t the greatest so we spent that time refining our skills and then explored the mangroves and reef out in Whangateau.

Working with EMR (Experiencing Marine Reserves) is a great opportunity for our school and we would like to encourage others to volunteer or participate with their organisation. They offer lots of free snorkelling experiences that you can check out on their Facebook page.

As a taster, enjoy these awesome photos from our trip.
