Every year Amesbury School runs an Activities Week at the end of term 4. This week happens after the final learning celebration for the year, once the inquiry / learning programmes in each team have finished. The Activities Week is often, though not always, in the last full week of the term, and it involves a range of activities, events and trips happening for each team. As part of this Activities Week, students in each team have the option of participating in an overnight camp of some sort. All students from Year 0 - Year 6 have the opportunity to be involved in overnight camps every year:
- In even years the team runs an Activities Week at school based around five strands of activities, and students all opt into one strand for the week. Examples of the strands offered are a Sports strand, a Books and Movies strand, an Art and Museums Strand, a Biking and Walking strand, an Inventions and Creations strand. In different years, other strands are also offered. One teacher runs each strand, and students participate in activities linked with each strand, both at school and in offsite locations around the city. On one of the days during this week, students also have the option of participating in an overnight stay at school.
- In odd years students can choose to stay at school and participate in a range of local activities and events with several teachers, or they can opt into a camp at a location on the South Island. Some teachers and parent assistants also attend the camp.
Here is the timetable, gear list, costs and some more important information for camp for Harakeke Hub, coming up in the first week of Term 4 (11th October or 12th October). Please see the Hero post for the group your child will be in if they are staying overnight.
