Adventureworks High Ropes 2013

For over 20 years, the Transition students have spent the last week in February at the Adventureworks High Ropes Course.  Adventureworks is now on the UNITEC campus in Mt Albert.

The transition class of 2013 enjoyed the week climbing, belaying, and supporting each other to achieve amazing things.

The level of support, encouragement, enthusiasm and focus shown by all the students in the group impressed the tutors Sarah, Ken and Debs, who look forward to the KDEC week each year.

The Year 2 students, Ben, Ngawaiata, Dan and James, led each activity, receiving NCEA Level 3 credits in Leadership.  The Year 1 students learned and participated under the careful guidance of the Year 2s and the Adventureworks tutors.  They received 12 NCEA Level 2 credits.
It was heart-warming to see the way the group worked together to ensure all students participated fully and pushed themselves outside their own comfort zone.
