Year 12 PE Trip to the Poor Knights

Our first excursion for physical education for 2021 started on a high, with a tight group of six-year 12’s travelling to the Poor Knights.

The journey out on the water was rough and therefore a bumpy 40-minute boat ride to our destination, causing some of us to not be able to enjoy the full experience of the boat ride. Once we had arrived it was all worth the discomfort. When we reached Poor Knights the water had settled and it was a perfect day to
explore – the sea was clear and not too cold. We changed into our wetsuits and dived right in, with no time to waste. We were offered a variety of different activities to partake in, which included; the opportunity to snorkel, paddleboard, kayak or just relax on the boat.

It was a memorable experience to witness all the different fish, coral, and underwater plant life. We were truly blessed to have had the opportunity to see this beautiful part of New Zealand and thank you to Mr. Keyte for t

 

aking us and allowing us this opportunity.
