these school holidays -- pirates
are sailors too.
The museum is running a
Pirate Academy where children
aged 5 to 12 will learn the skills
of a sailor.
A balance of fun and good
challenging physical tasks will
be combined with learning the
necessary skills and attributes
of a sailor and pirate.

their own Pirate Kit Bag and fill
it with booty of their own cre-

The importance of physical fit-
ness for duty will be highlighted
at the Pirate Boot Camp and the
newly released book The Pirate
that Couldn't Swim by Ryan
Walters will be used to promote
the importance of being safe and
confident around water.
The programme will also
include a treasure hunt and
those taking part will also com-
plete a seafaring fact book and
have their photo taken for Voy-
ager s Facebook page.
The Pirate Academy will run
from July 15 to 28 from 9.30am
to 3.30pm daily and costs $5 for
Auckland residents with accom-
panying adults free.
