On Wednesday we walked down to Starveall Street with the rest of the Junior Syndicate to watch a car stopping demonstration. Mrs Woodward went in the car with Carl. He drove at 20 kph and slammed on his brakes when we yelled Stop! He stopped pretty quickly. Then he drove at 50 kph. It took longer to stop. When he drove at 60 kph he crashed in to the cardboard lady because it took him longer to stop. We learnt we always need to Stop, Look and Listen before we cross the road.

Brightwater School were very lucky to have a visit from Mike Dawson, the New Zealand Olympic Ambassador. He showed us the gear he wears to compete in the kayak slalom. Drew got to put the gear on. He wears a skirt to stop the water getting in the kayak. He wears a lifejacket. He wears a t shirt with his number on. Finally he wears a helmet to protect his head. He showed us videos of the food hall in Rio that can feed 5000 people at a time.
