Auroa Primary School - Our Special Visitor Returns...

On Monday we had an unexpected visitor at Auroa Primary School - Scott Donaldson, who had attempted early in the year to kayak between Australia and New Zealand.   Unfortunately he was unable to complete this amazing feat, having to abandon the attempt just short.  The story didn't end there of course, because his abandoned kayak eventually washed up on the farm of one of our students, before it was recovered.  It featured on the national news! On Monday Scott came back and brought his Kayak with him and answered some questions from students at Auroa Primary School.  It was another opportunity to see the kayak up close and this time to also here Scott talk about his amazing adventures.   These pictures were taken by Harley from Room One on Monday 15th September, 2014.

Some of the other classrooms of Auroa Primary School have written already about Scotts visit. If you click on the link here you can hear about his visit to Room 8.
