Description: In week 7, we had an overnight stay at the local Marae in Woodville. We were immersed in Maori culture and participated in a range of activities. We set two goals to focus on during our stay.
Here is my camp goals:
If you can't read it, here is what it says:
I aim to cooperate with my team more because I usually like hanging out with people I know REALLY well.
I aim to create a creative presentation that will bring humour and entertainment in the camp concert.
1. Did you achieve your goals? How do you know?
I know I have achieved my goals by far. I managed to cooperate with my group well even though I didn't know them that well. I have also brought entertainment in the room at camp concert.
2. What are you most proud of from the marae stay and why?
I am most proud of being able to have a GOOD sleep. I might of overslept by 30 mins, but at least I got a better sleep than anyone else. I didn't get any interruptions and I didn't let the noise bother me.
3. What challenged you the most and why?
What challenged me the most was the stilts. I have never tried the stilts before so it was a great experience. I kept falling down and losing my balance but eventually I got there by practising.
Here is my bookmark I made about my highlights at camp.
If you didn't get the picture on the bookmark I will explain them to you.
The first picture is a picture of a pukeko. In the bus ride to the Marae, there was a pukeko walking by. It was pretty amazing that we saw a native bird.
The second one is a Maori symbol. It was called a Swirl Koru. A Swirl Koru means growth and unity. I thought at camp that we were all growing in our learning of Maori culture and togetherness.
The third one is a picture of the Manawatu Gorge. In the Gorge walk I thought the scenery was extraordinary including the story behind it.
