Earlier this year, Akaroa Area school welcomed Year Nine students and their Stars peer mentors from Oxford School. Students from both schools were treated to a dolphin sightseeing tour thanks to Black Cat cruises.
That night both schools were invited onto the local Marae where they enjoyed a fish and chip supper followed by a quiz night.
The following day both sets of students participated in the Akaroa community treasure hunt. Local Stars students and mentors hosted teams of six as they raced around the Akaroa harbour.
Later this year, the Akaroa students will visit Oxford where they will take part in team building exercises, local community treasure hunt and visit the local observatory.
