Today on Tuesday 26 of september, Constable Jude brought a police dog and two police dog handlers to glenbrae school.The police dog was named Kase and the dog handler's were named Colin and Grunt. The dog's breed is a german shepherd.
Colin the dog hadeler talked to us about tracking and how they train their dogs. There dogs go to a special school in wellington and the get kept there until it is 10 months old. When they are 10 weeks old they get flu over to Auckland and dog handlers train them.
After he explained to us about how they trained their dogs Grunt put a dog sleeve and collins let go of the dog and the dog ran after Grunt. It was cool the do dog kept it mouth on him even when Grunt was spin him around.
After that we got to pat the dog and then we went back to class it was a good experience to get up close with a German Shepherd and I had a lot of fun learning about the dog.

On the 21st August 2017, Year 7 & 8 students had a wonderful opportunity to do bushcraft at Russell, in the Bay of Island New Zealand with our instructor, named Sarah. This was part of Glenbrae School’s camp.
The first thing we did was, we learned how to tie knots. We learnt the Q and P knot, churkers knot and the double knot. We all practiced until we felt competent with it. After all that hard work we put it to the test. We got a set of tarpaulin, ropes and pegs. First we found two trees to tie our ropes around. We did a churker's knot and then we grabbed the other end of the rope and went under the tarpaulin. When we got to the other side we tied it to the tree. This was helpful for us so we knew how to put up a tent for when we slept in the bush.
Later on, Sarah taught us how to make a fire. She said to gather as much wood as we could and then bring it back. So we did. When we came back we made a small hole in the ground and put some sticks in a cross formation. Then we put a bunch of dead twigs in the middle and then set it alight with matches. We boiled some water in a billy over the fire and it didn't take long.
It was a great experience I had a lot of fun and I would use life skill when I am older.
