Noho Marae week at Koraunui Marae Stokes Valley.

If I could describe the Marae trip or the group that went with one word it would be, AMAZING. The behaviour every student had on the trip was of a high expectation and the attitude that was had towards both bush walks was excellent. Some students in particular showed immense support towards one another, an example of one of the students was Jeremiah (Room 1) who helped out a classmate who slipped down the side of the Horoeka Track. Everyone had a great time and we are all very grateful for staying at the Marae, and be able to get to know each other better. Theo Room 1
