Kiwi Can Fun

Kiwi Can Fun

Our Kiwi Can energiser today was a game similar to dodgeball but called Stuck Ball.  This game called on our integrity and honesty when we got hit by a ball from the opposing team.  Our shrieks of delight could be heard all over the junior court.

Riki talks with us about ways we showed integrity.

Game on!
Ready to play again.
Katie checks our integrity from the start.
