On Wednesday 12 June, all the children traveled to Taihape to have a go at ice skating. The Ice Skate Tour set up their state of the art, artificial rink in the Taihape Area School hall. It looks like ice and has 97% gliding capacity as natural ice. Surrounded by an inflatable wall, helmets and gloves made the ice skating experience safe and fun. Although there were some tumbles, the kids described their cool but not cold encounter as really enjoyable and fun.
