Mana Syndicate Sleepover- 28th February-1st March 2019
7 February 2019
As part of our Education Outside the Classroom Programme, Mana Syndicate will hold an overnight sleepover at school on the evening of 28th February. The purpose of the sleepover is to give children a practical understanding of outdoor living by sleeping away from home in a camp-like environment. This is a natural progression towards participating in future camps in Hongoeka and Taupō syndicates.
All children will be sleeping in classrooms with parents.
Porirua Police will be advised of our sleepover.
One of the objectives of our sleepover is to give children the opportunity to look after their own gear. We ask that parents let children set up their own bedding, tidy up their own gear in the morning and store it outside classrooms, make their own breakfast and reassemble the classrooms. This is ‘Managing Self’ which is one of the NZ Curriculum's Key Competencies.
