School camp helps grow good citizens
Leaders are in the making at Forest View High School after more than 40 year 13 students attended a citizenship camp last week.
The three-day event was held in partnership with the Perry Outdoor Education Trust and the Foundation for Youth Development.
Student dean Kathy McGovern said the aim of the camp was to set up the students with goals for their school and personal life for the year ahead.
The camp included staying at Puakani Marae in Mangakino, completing a ‘‘mini taniwha’’ event, peer mentoring and completing community services work.
