The zip-lining was also great fun – despite initial concerns amongst the students, they all overcame their fear of heights as the laughter and excitement from their fellow students spurred-on their courage. The zip-lining was so enticing that Ollie even allowed the rangers and Working on Fire team a go on the line once all the students had moved on to the next activity. The last activity for the day was Put-put. Ollie interacted well with the students and showed them how to correctly position themselves when hitting the ball. Some of the winning students were even promised a large milkshake for a hole-in-one and much to his surprise, 3 of the students hit the mark. After the Put-put all the students and even the rangers were treated to an end of day soda on-the-house.
The students enjoyed the day so much that many of them ardently objected to the notion of going home, but like all good things the day was at an end. The students could not help but ask the rangers when they would next be visiting their school for another fun education day, and the rangers could not help but smile. The outing though could not have been a success without contributions from Ollie and Clarens Xtreme; Sherri Gersh for all her planning and arrangement making; the Working on Fire team who helped supervise the students and last but not least the rangers Eben, Samuel, Amos and head ranger Damien, without whom the C.V.C. Fun-Day would never have taken place.
