On the 23th of August 2017 Glenbrae School. Year 7 & 8 went kayaking at Kororareka Beach, near Russell. This was one of the activists. For the Glenbrae School camp.

We came with sarah in her car it was a sweet old ride. When we got there we had to get in our swimming togs after we went to the sand or rocky beach  to pick our own kayak.

After we picked it we had to learn some rules. After we had to get a partner and lift it up next to the sea. I was with alfred we were like the only wons lifting them up and some of them were still struggling to hold it. When all the boats were inside the sea we had to sail anywhere to get control of it.

When I got control of it I was getting good at it. The other kids were good at it they were good at turning the kayak going straight with the kayak and when we all knew how to get control of the kayak.We went for a ride on the corner of the beach it was tiring when we went back we played a game we had to ruff up and the person has to run across the kayaks and make it to the end and that was fun because I was spending time with my non member friends thank you. :)
