On Monday 15th November, the cast and Cloud 9 team get together at Cloud 9¹s production centre to have a viewing of some completed Tribe episodes from Series 2.

On the weekend, members of cast had a barbeque at the houseparent¹s and chaperones¹ house and all had a good time. As fans in New Zealand know it is getting to summertime in New Zealand and temperatures are rising so this is the time for barbeques!
