Our Duke of Edinburgh students enjoyed the beautiful Mt Tarawera as their back drop on the recent Silver Qualifying Tramp.  A boat ride across Lake Tarawera on Day 1 was followed by a 5 hour tramp to Humphrey’s Bay to set up camp for the night.  Day Two included at 12km tramp and a leisurely afternoon swimming and relaxing at Lake Okataina.  The final day was a slow but sure 19km tramp uphill avoiding mountain bikers, eating wild blackberries and even spotting a wallaby!
