Learn­ing out in the open

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

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.
