Ice Tour visited us here at Holy Cross School Papatoetoe. How lucky we were to have the experience of ice skating right here in Papatoetoe in our school hall. The helmets were real, the gloves, the skates all real. The ice ? No, that was not real!
The ‘ice’ was actually a white, plastic surface which looked and felt a lot like a chopping board. Our ice skating coach, Robin told us that it was a lot easier for kids to skate on than real ice. Even if it were easier than real ice many people still slipped over.
It was a lot of fun. People danced to the music, chased one another around, played tag and caught bubbles all on the fake ice in our hall.
