Year 9 BOYS! You still have a chance!!
There is still a place for a year 9 boy to be part of a 5-day trophy voyage in February 2015 with the Burnside High team, together with year 10 students from 3 other NZ schools.
The ship environment will help develop your self-confidence and ability to work in a team. Through the programme you will learn the fundamentals of seamanship, water safety, sailing and marine sciences including navigation, meteorology and conservation. You will have an opportunity to expand your capabilities and discover your potential.
This is a great opportunity to spend 5 days on a "tall ship" with 39 other students, make new friends and have an awesome time.
Hand in names to Mrs Gough-Jones in X6, or email to gj@burnside.school.nz as soon as possible. First in means you get to be selected. For more information, check the web site www.spiritofadventure.org.nz or see Mrs Gough-Jones.
