Remember how you had to plan and prepare for a survival experience on Kakepuku?
Well, plan and prepare for the same thing for Wednesday - it will be foul weather no doubt. Underfoot it will be wet, slippery and muddy. Shoes need to be water resistant and grippy. Socks need to be thick and warm. Pants need to be warm. Your raincoat needs to be good quality to protect you from hours in the rain. You need a food, drink, spare socks and pants. A small towel might be wise. A showerproof, warm hat would be a VERY good idea. Your drink should be water or something healthy. No fizzy drinks or caffeinated energy drinks. Chocolate is fine with extra for mR WOody and Mr Abrahams. Bring two plastic bags for wet clothes and shoes.
Cameras are a good thing to bring but need to be in a water proof bag of some sort.
Mobile phones are okay.
We plan to visit Kakepuku, Yarndley's Bush and the Sustainable Backyard at the Hamilton Gardens.
If you all get your permission slips in by tomorrow morning we will have a trip to the garden area as a reward and you will get 100 class points. If you all bring the cash for the trip you will get an extra 100 class points.
I can't wait!
