Rocky Shore trip 2017

What a dramatic day it was! Great excitement was caused even before we had left Opua with our bus being unable to get onto the Okiato ferry! The children dealt with this unexpected event very well indeed, despite all having to file off the bus to lighten it, and have an extra paragraph to add into their descriptive writing about their day’s experiences!

We had to go to a quickly designed alternative plan and we ended up at Bayly’s Beach which turned out to be very giving and a wonderful back up. Many, many thanks to all the parents and caregivers who came along to help. Without you, this event would be impossible to put on. You are all very much appreciated. My thanks also to the teachers who attended and put it such effort to make a challenging and eventful day very worthwhile for the children and their learning!

About Simon McGowan

Hello everyone. I am the new Principal at Opua School and am delighted to be so. I arrived in New Zealand in 1999, after teaching in the UK for 13 years, and very soon became the Deputy Principal at Bay of Islands College. I finished there at the end of 2012 after being appointed as the Principal of the best little school in the universe. I feel so privileged and very excited.
