ALERT FOR OUR YEAR 9 PARENTS

AN ALERT TO OUR YEAR 9 PARENTS

A water-based activity has been included in the schedule of activities for the Year 9 Journey Programme at Parakino Marae on Thursday 9th of February. The reason for its inclusion was the need to have an activity away from the immediate site due to the number of group activities running at the same time. This will also provide a cooling activity on a hot day.

The activity takes place in a very shallow section of the bank on the Whanganui River where the water is no more than knee deep with smooth stones along the bottom. It is NOT a swimming activity given the depth of the water. This activity will take place with groups of 10 students with 4-5 supervisors; so the ratio of supervision is almost 1 to 2.

Hayden Hepburn, who is a fully qualified and experienced Outdoor Education expert, will oversee this activity. He will check the conditions of the river beforehand and ensure it is safe to use. Supervisors will be on the bank and in the water ensuring students at all times stay within the boundaries of the activity. It is considered a low risk water-based activity given the depth of the water, the supervision on site and the activities taking place.

However, if parents do not want their child to participate in this activity, then please contact the main office and we will ensure that your wishes are followed.
