We have begun the year discussing and sharing ideas around manaakitanga. Students have been working together on a variety of activities in order to better understand how working together, sharing ideas, and problem solving helps us all to achieve our group and individual goals.
Base groups took part in a team building exercise called "The River of Lava." They had to cross the river without touching the lava with a limited number of safe zones along the way.
This activity involved groups holding a hula hoop by their fingertips and slowly lowering to the ground. It involved a lot of careful movements and great communication.
We also used team work, trust, and communication in this activity called 'Circle Sit'. Each base group had to rely on the person behind them to support them when carefully sit down.
