Room 6's health trip 

By Beth Downie | Posted: Tuesday August 22, 2017

We had an amazing day out to many of Dunedin's finest health establishments. 

We were so very lucky to have our tour to Forsyth Barr Stadium coincide with a closed All Black training - it was a strict device free zone (hence no photos) and we had to be super quiet also...but wow what a privilege.  We heard all about the building of the stadium and the special roof features  - but mostly we were watching the AB's train! 

We then walked to the Sports Institute and had a tour of their amazing facilities.  Matt Blair talked to us about the importance of mindfulness, eating well and hydration. We also watched the Otago rugby train.  A highlight was  listening and watching the analysts do their job of analyzing each tackle, each heart rate movement and so on. 

We then went to UniPol and had a tour of this extraordinary facility  and we had a free style play in their gym space - we had futsal balls, basketballs and netballs and just enjoyed the time we had in there.

From there we walked to the Anatomy Museum and we lucky enough to spend time in this amazing space.  This museum is not open to the public and is a teaching museum so we were very lucky to have a tour of this facility and be able to have a hands on look at the displays. 

Many thanks to Brenda and Nikola who were our parent helpers on the day. 

Well done too to all our R6 learners who asked some excellent questions and were great ambassadors for our school.
