On the 22nd of June room11  had a trip to Palmerston North. We went to Te Manawa,the skate park and the ropes courses . My highlight was the ropes course. At school we had to get pictures,write what we felt and display them. Here is pictures of me at the ropes course and how I felt.

We recently attended the NYLD/12 in Palmerston North.  We listened to six very inspiring speakers.  We are doing larger posters related to the day, however these comments had the most impact for us personally when we thought about what SPARKS OUR POTENTIAL.

Cam Calkoen taught us to never give up.  Even though he had cerebral palsy Cam went on to run for NZ in the 100m at the para-olympics

Cam Calkeon was born with cerebral palsy but dreamed big. With his determination and commitment he went on to win the para-olympics 100 metre sprint.  He taught us to dream big, focus on strengths and do what you can not what you can't.

Cam Calkoen is a person who has cerebral palsy and has managed to become a great sportsman. He always had a dream when he was young and at young leaders he said 'build a dream and a dream will build you'.

Dr Farrah Palmer                                                                                                                                                           I never new ladies could play rugby that hard.  I thought that she got me interested in how to be a leader.  Dr Farrah Palmer was a New Zealand rugby player.  Her position was hooker for the New Zealand Black Ferns.

Dave Atkinson, who has his own company, Attitude, which is dedicated to creatively teaching life skills that will assist teenagers, taught me that I should stick up for what's right and what's good.

Dave Atkinson, who started his own company called Attitude, which is dedicated to creatively teaching life skills to youth, said "if somethings worth doing it's better doing it badly then not doing it at all."

Dave  Atkinson, who has started his own company called, Attitude, which  is dedicated to creatively teaching youths life skills, taught me that if something is worth doing it's worth doing wrong until you get it right
