More about Oxford Area School

All students have had multiple school experiences as juniors in the outdoors. They will have completed a water skills based course, a week in a mountain environment with tramping, river rafting, ropes courses, confidence building and team work activities, as well as a snow experience with snow skills including snowboarding and/or skiing. Senior students specialising in Outdoor Education often assist on the junior programme so that leadership skills can also be practised. The senior Outdoor Education programme involves travel over the South Island.
