On Saturday afternoon, thirteen Keas did a fantastic job of using all the skills they had learned in Term 1 to lead their expedition on the City to Sea walkway. They checked their maps at Kingston, confirmed their route to Island Bay, made sure they had their snacks, water and spare clothing, and off we went in two teams with kaiarahi and parents in support. Every kea had a chance to lead their team, and work out which way to go. We had great views of the hills and Cook Strait, saw weta, kaka (but no whales). We stopped for drinks and snacks at the water reservoirs, and finished at the Island Bay playground. Heaps of fun. New kea Miles said “it was the best walk of my life”.
Term 2 Keas starts on Tuesday 3 May 5.30pm at the scout hall. New members: to get on the wait list, please register your interest via http://brooklynscouts.org.nz/join/
