Our Experience on the Waitangi Trip - Waitangi Treaty grounds - Copthorne Hotel e.c.t...


Last week, we went on our Waitangi Trip. The reason why we went up north to the Bay of islands was because, we entered into a competition that was about the 'Treaty of Waitangi'. Our main/big question was 'WHY the treaty of Waitangi is still RELEVANT today?...' Our Movie was based on this question.. and the topics we studied were.. Protection... Participation and ... Partnership.. Well also known as the three 'P's'. The group that made the movie, were called 'The Royal Pages..' I was apart of that reading group. In the finish we came second, which meant our reading group were able to go and stay up at the Copthorne hotel resort, but also, not only did we go, but the student council also came, which was fair because they've worked hard to be role models for our school and make good decisions as well. 

A highlight from the Waitangi trip would've been, Kayaking. Being able to work as a team in partners was just entertaining because, actually bonding and making mistakes were hilarious.. I couldn't and would never forget those four days and three nights because they were the most inspiring and funny days ever of my life. Thank you very much to sponsors who paid and actually made this trip happen, If it weren't for you guy's this great opportunity wouldn't have happened for us young adolescence.
