Rutherford College: partnering with schools

What happens when you get a bunch of inexperienced girls trying kayaking for the first time???


A lot of fun.

Plus laughter, confidence, team work, and a little bit of splashing …

Adventure Specialties took some students from Rutherford College on a kayaking adventure around Leigh wharf, north of Auckland.

The purpose of the trip was to allow young women the opportunity to participate in non-traditional sports.

As well as exploring the area inside this sheltered harbour, the students also:

  • took turns leading the group,
  • competed at spinning around 360 degrees as fast as possible,
  • helped each other climb from one kayak to another, and
  • did a problem-solving team building exercise on the beach.
