Trip to Wellington
The ambassadors are presenting at a conference in Wellington. Butterflies were fluttering around my stomach when we were told. I felt excitement and nervousness all in one moment.
The annoying alarm went off in my ears. Usually mum has to wake me up but today was different. I opened my eyes and quickly got myself organised for the day. It didn’t take long before we were on the road. We arrived at school and some of the ambassadors were already there. Mr and Mrs Burt asked us to come in and get a Year 7/8 jacket to wear down in Wellington. Miss Garden and Rita went to collect our netbooks from the class. Then we were instructed to put our own netbooks into our bags to take with us. After a few minutes had passed, the last of the ambassadors arrived and it was just about time to go. Once we had everything ready and after a quick prayer, we all hopped in Mr and Mrs Burt’s cars and drove to the airport.
“Hold onto your boarding pass” Mrs Burt instructed “Or else you can’t get on the plane or into the Koru Club” she warned. “Okay” we all said. There were eight of us altogether four boys and four girls on our way to windy Wellington.
