AUGUST MILLARD NEWS

August Millard staff recently completed a fun afternoon group activity at Vector Wero Water Park in Manukau doing the advanced white water rafting course Grade 3-4 river.  It was all about teamwork as we spent an hour paddling around the mild but mighty Tamariki River and racing down the heart pounding River Rush rapids, culminating in the ultimate thrill of heading down the world’s highest man-made waterfall, an exhilarating 4.5m drop down the Pump Waterfall!  Some were in their element and some out of their comfort zones with not so strong swimmers being forced into the water and some being rescued after taking a dip post rapids. This really was a great activity to enjoy everyone’s company, support each other, laugh a lot and see problem solving skills come to the fore. The refreshments at Hallertau post activity were well deserved and appreciated!
