Let's Sing - Auckland Live. Our Whakapono Trip to the city

What an amazing experience given to our Whakapono students... Our children who have never been into the city were mesmerised by the tall buildings, amount of cars and noise level that is found in town.

They were shown around the Aotea Square theatres by two amazing guides Catherine and Niamh, we walked from town hall to the Herald Theatre, then to ASB Theatre back to the concert chamber with Frances and James.

Morning Tea and lunch was out in the square where everyone had a good run around before we headed back inside. 
The bus seemed to be the highlight for many of our students... 

 Our bus ride into the city... We jumped on the luxurious bus in.

Thanks Whakapono Teachers...

  2. Looks like you all had a great time Whakapono 22. We sure did in Whakapono 17. I agree, a brilliant trip filled with lots of interactive and fun things to do.
