Students from Fiordland College were at Ivon Wilson Park clearing and cleaning up the park as well as using the mountain bike track. While we were at the Gnuff's house, Matiu and Jacob from Fiordland College stopped to give us something they had found in the park. They had found Charlie's photo and whistle that had come off his jacket the week before. Charlie was so happy to get it back as he thought that it was lost forever. He kept blowing the whistle to make sure that it still worked.
Charlie said, "We were trying to jump to the rocks. I jumped on the ground by the rock and then I jumped on to the big rock. It was fun cos it was so much fun. It's cool cos it's fun. My friends did the same as me."
On our travels we collected pinecones, leaves and gum nuts for Children's Day on Sunday 3rd March. We put them in a pile under some trees to use on Sunday. When we got back to the shed, the College students had dropped of 2 bags of pinecones for us. Some we will keep for our fire and some for Children's Day. Another great sunny day in Fiordland.
