Our Te Puia Trip
Last week Amazing Room 8 went on an awesome trip to Te Puia and we had a fun ride on the bus to get there! Thank you to all those parents who were there meet us when we arrived and who then shared the fantastic experience of this local resource with us. We started the morning by meeting our guide Matua Paul who talked to us about the carvings and introduced us to the Maori art schools of weaving and carving. Then we saw our morning tea eggs being boiled in the bubbling steamy hot pool, next we ate those delicious eggs and made sure we didn't leave any rubbish or mess behind. After this we went for a walk to see the Pohutu Geyser. Many of us walked through the spray from this and got a bit damp. Finally it was back on the bus and off we went back to school.
