On Friday the 15th, our whole school had a picnic at the Waikanae Pools! From what I observed, we all had a great time! There was a lot of swimming, splashing, flipping of huge inflatable millipedes, and speeding down the hydro-slide!
There’s also the food… Sausage sizzles (straight from the barbecue), lollies, chips, ice-blocks, drinks, and of course the nice (mostly) reliable lunchbox. I think lots of people have had the experience of leaving their poor food behind.
I’m pretty sure that you’d all want to see some photos from this day. So I took some! Kids posed for the camera:
And sometimes, well, not everybody can get a good photo… Mostly because lots of kids dislike keeping their mouths shut! (Or they had water in one eye!)
Maybe we’ll get a better photo next time!
It was pretty fun! I’m sure that everyone from year 7 and down can’t wait until we do this again, (and year 8′s as well, if the next picnic is this year.)
Oh, and here’s the giant millipede! Well, I’m pretty sure that’s what it is…
