Trip to Cancer Society: We have been planning our own trips that link with our own inquiries





At 9:00 on Wednesday morning 26th of November, Asha, Chanel, Gretel, Eloise, Frankie and Maya went on a inquiry trip to the ‘Cancer Society’ We asked some questions and we found out that the most common type of Cancer is Skin Cancer (In New Zealand). We got a photo with the staff members beside the Cancer society sign. We found out a lot while asking our questions:


Next we went to the Wellington hospital, we looked at the x-ray rooms, Chemotherapy room, operating room and the radio therapy room.


After that we went to the Hospice and made a gold coin donation, we talked about why people come here and when.


We got an ice-cream on the way back! (Yum)
