Year 9 CYGNET Trip
by Talia van Rooyen (Hockey)
In February I went to Tree Adventures with all the Year 9 CYGNET students and Sports Prefects. It was a really cool experience going through all the different courses with your friends, making new friends and working together to get to the end of each course. In particular, I enjoyed going down the flying fox. My favourite part of CYGNET so far is being able to work with some of your friends that you don’t usually have a chance to work with and learning so many new skills on Code days with amazing coaches.
Year 10 CYGNET Trip
by Maia Maxwell (Netball)
Earlier this month all the Year 10 CYGNET students headed off to Vector Wero in Manukau to do some white water rafting. We spent the day out there getting to know each other, making action packed memories and practicing a little bit of team building. One of my favourite parts of the trip was getting to be the instructor for a little bit and leading my team down the rough rivers. I must say I wasn’t the best at leading because we smashed into quite a lot of barriers and I fell out of the raft into the currents and I left my team to lead themselves!
Another one of my great memories was going down the pump waterfall. While we were going down I got about 50 litres of water smashed against me and I got absolutely drenched. But overall it was a great experience, made better friendships with others, learnt many new things and I would definitely do it again.
