This week the Student Advisory Board leaders from Motupipi were ambassadors for the Abel Tasman. They welcomed the winners of DOC's Virtual Great Walker contest to Anchorage, Room 7 from Hillcrest Normal School, which is near Hamilton.

The team was waiting to welcome the walkers when they arrived at Anchorage and spent the night with them getting to know the area and each other.

They were presented with handmade cards and beautiful painted stones as thank you gifts!


Day 2 included a walk to Cleopatra's Pool before heading home again. This was such a great opportunity for our leadership team to represent the Park - and have some fun, too!
