April 1st is usually April Fool’s day, but for the Rata Team this was the date for our exciting trek to Bayfield Park.
We practiced our Stepping Out Road safety skills along the way and discovered some special features within our Bay. These features included a hidden track behind the pink gate opposite the school, the Rongo memorial stone for the people of Ngati Ruanui and Nga Ruahine from Parihaka, the inlet and of course the Bayfield Playground.
After all our discoveries, we completed our morning with morning tea kai and a play, before the long trek back up to school. Thanks to all the whanau who joined us for this experience.
