Education Outside The Classroom

Camps and Outdoor Education experiences are part of what makes our school so special.

Class Camps

All classes take part in a camp each year. In some cases, classes combine for their camping experiences.  Our extensive camp programme utilises a range of venues, giving our students experience beyond the school.  Camps have been held in locations such as the Far North, Wellington and the Hawkes Bay, as well as fantastic outdoor education facilities at Omokoroa, Ohope, Motutapu and Kawau Islands to name just a few.


Every October we give our students the opportunity to learn to sail with the wonderful team from Yachting New Zealand. This is held at Lake Ngaroto, with assistance from the Ngaroto Sailing Club.

The cost of this experience is approximately $45. The cost includes hire of the equipment provided by Yachting NZ, instructors and a great lunch.

Mountain Biking

Twice a year our students have a chance to go Mountain Biking in both the first and fourth term.
