AS and A2 Physical Education Camp

The AS and A2 Physical Education classes travelled to the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park as part of their coursework assessment.  The A2 class left with Mr Overbury and began their expedition by tramping the Inland track to Castle Rock, staying in the back country DOC hut.  After a rugged climb over a rough track, they experienced amazing views and chilly temperatures when another tramper inadvertently left the hut door open.  They then departed the next day to head to Anchorage Bay to meet up with the AS class who were arriving from Marahau.  After a relaxing afternoon and evening the groups then headed to Awaroa, and the much awaited pizza at the Awaroa Lodge.  The next morning was damp and dark, with groups departing the Awaroa Campsite at varying times from 5am after a 4.30am wake up call.  Two hours of walking in the dark, a beautiful dawn and excellent beaches and views were the agenda for the rest of the day.  Students reached the Whariwharangi Homestead Hut for an early lunch at 11am, and then up and over the hill for navigation assessment before reaching their transfer bus at Wainui Bay 60+ kilometers later.
