Learning out in the open
Tokoroa Central School pupils spent three days at Totara Springs in Matamata. The years 4, 5 and 6 students played top town-style games, went abseiling and go-karting, and toasted marshmallows. Principal Tina-maree Hooper said: ‘‘We wanted to provide real outdoor adventure-type activities, something completely different from the classroom. So it was education outside the classroom.’’ Pictured is Henare Ahomiro.
