The pinnacle point of the year

As part of the 2.9 Achievement Standard, the Year 12 Outdoor Education students planned and implemented a class trip to the Pinnacles Summit, Coromandel in late August.

Students learnt the importance of planning the logistics of their own trip to the outdoors, and the safety precautions and protocols to be aware of when planning an overnight tramp.

The class worked collectively and collaboratively, analysing Department of Conservation websites for tracks, reading maps, watching weather updates to ensure the trip went ahead.

Despite the horrific Auckland weather, the students stuck to their plan and the Coromandel weather proved to be stunning! The students will now be reflecting on their successful trip and looking ahead to their final achievement standard in the Redwoods Forrest- Mountain Biking.
