2016 SAB Retreat at Waiharakeke!

26 February 2016 / Posted by Janszoon Education

What a great way to start a new year off with a new leadership team than to have a weekend getaway in the Abel Tasman from the 20th to the 22nd of February!

The student leadership team gathered at Totaranui to start the weekend off with a walk to Camp HQ at Waiharakeke.

The focus of the weekend is to come together as a team, learn and hone leadership and teamwork skills, and grow our expertise in conservation and understanding of the environment.

Highlights of the weekend included:

  • Fabulous food from Kathy - who joined us from Onetahua marae
  • Fresh water fish monitoring - including putting out g-minnow traps and spotlighting for fish
  • Crossing the Awaroa inlet and getting a tour of the hut warden's quaters - what a view!
  • Visits and presentations from Devon from Project Janszoon and Chris from DOC
  • FUN times getting to know this great group - playing games, talking, and waking up to our own playlist

Have a look at the photos from the weekend to see this wonderful team in action!
