Monday: We went kayaking in Lake Wherowhero. Harman, Eva and I managed to not capsize. After that we went rock hopping around half of the lakeside. It got tricky when we got around 1/4 of the way, because basically all the rocks were on an angle facing downwards to the water . When we got right around we went through the pipeline. Once we got back, we went to our dorms for a while. Then we went into the dinning room for some tea and some Milo, the thing we had for dinner was pasta and some veggies and then we played some handball and went to bed.
Tuesday: We went to a stream called Lake Kiriopukae, it was a smallish walk up to the stream, when we jumped over the stream some people went over to a big rock that was on an angle and slid down it . Once I did that I jumped into the stream before realizing that we had to do the undie 5 hundie. It was uncomfortable on the ride back to Kaitawa because our pants were very wet. After that, we did the confidence course, the obstacles on it were two logs to jump over, a wall to climb over and then the monkey bars, another wall to climb over, and a cargo net that we flipped over.
Wednesday: On the 15th we did Master chef for breakfast. We made a pancake as Minnie Mouse and for lunch we made spaghetti and mince stew, after that we had lunch.
Thursday: On the 16th, we went caving. In one of the caves there was a huge weta about 5cm long and 3cm wide. One of the caves had a big drop, basically everyone slipped over. By the time the second group got back it was time for some hand ball and then last but not least fear factor.
Friday: On the 17th of March, we packed up getting ready to go before having breakfast. Once we had breakfast, we did a few things like games and then hopped in our vans and began our journey back to school.
Once we got back to school, we had to wait for our bags then we had to go on another journey home.

In the morning around 8.30 everyone woke up and they where more than furies at Emma because she had put out the fire’s. they shouted at Emma GO TO THE VOLCANO AND GET US MORE FIRE NOW !!!!.But no one wanted to go with her only her friends the birds Rupe,Huia,Tui,Pukeko,kiwi,piwakawaka and gourd .When Emma was Running the 20 km the ground got dryer and dryer like a desert and the wind got hotter as Emma got closer to the volcano she like she was usain bolt and she had run 30 laps around two fields .finally she got to the volcano and a river. Stay here friends so i can go in along .As Emma was walking in she saw a old lady sitting next to a fire with fire red tikis around her .Hello said Emma you must be my aunty Rebekah .Can i please have some of your flames Emma asked her aunt .the old lady held her fingers and said taking a nail of her thumb take good care of this flame Emma. but i had a plan.Emma went out of the volcano and throw the flame in the water but when he went back into the volcano her 1st excuse was it started raining and it
got burnt out .Emma’s aunt gave Emma another flame but she said take better care of this one Emma when I was out of her site I throw that one into the river again and this excuse was that I bumt into a tiki and it snacth it out my hands .then the next one was,a taniwha took it ,the eel caught it.now her aunt is on to her last one and she was so furis at her she came out the flaming hot volcano with an evil face and all her cloths turn into flames .with all her power she blasted her last flame throw the only tree there and the top of the tree bursted into flames .and went back into the volcano .I climb the tree and pulled off so brunches
