I had the opportunity to go on a trip with 5 other students. This trip was to Auckland on the 20th September. So where do I begin, we had to be at school by 8am the latest, I made it at 7:33am.
On our way down we slept because, let’s face it, it’s tiring sitting in the van. We made it around 10:30am. We went to Swanson School for the fundraiser. It was a 24hour CYCLE EVENT, to raise money for FREE COUNSELLING SESSIONS and FOOD PACKAGES.
We walked into the office and were directed to the hall. We saw lots of kids and met Whaea Louise’s family.
We waited until morning tea to start our cycling. We cycled for 20minutes each. Ariana and Tavin won spot prizes for adidas shoes. We entered the competition to win other prizes throughout the day. The whole school was buzzing with excitement, from the junior classes to the seniors. We were new people, so everyone was looking at us and asking who we were.
After our cycling and talking to people, we took photos with Whaea Louise’s family, Rob and Noah, said our goodbyes and headed back home. Rob and Noah said how much they appreciated our support and thanked us for coming down to Auckland.
We had the best time and thank you to Whaea Louise for choosing us to represent the school, I really enjoyed this day.
