Sailing have a go!

We were very fortunate to have the opportunity to take 24 of our senior students to have a go at sailing. This was on Tuesday the 16th of May. We departed Glenbrae School at 8.30 am and arrived at Okahu Bay Sailing Club at 9 am. We were then introduced to Justin and Maria from Yachting NZ as well as Gavin and Gary from the Rotary. The day was full of learning, fun and challenges. The students were challenged out of their comfort zone to sail in pairs. There was much laughter and excitement once they were confident in controlling their sail boat. What a fabulous day we had. Thank you Rotary and Yachting NZ.

Here is a slideshow of our fun day.
