During the course of the year our high school pupils have opportunities to enjoy many outdoor activities.
Inaugural North Island Trip November 2018
Once exams were finished, students in Year 11 and 12 headed south. They enjoyed four days away experiencing a variety of activities. These included tramping the Tongoriro Crossing, caving, swimming and visiting a trout farm. It was the perfect way to end the year!
Tramp to Waitawheta
Since the inception of the high school, Year 9 pupils have been introduced to tramping with a trip through the Waitawheta Valley. "We hiked for four hours to the hut: We saw the tramway showing our logging heritage, a waterfall, we walked through streams and on swingbridges, saw possums, swam - there are many waterholes - slept overnight at the hut and then walked out again the next day." For many of our pupils this is their first taste of tramping.
Going to Totara Park to play tennis - that was fun.
Some walls were more challenging than others!
I'm glad we found the right marker...
