A new international educational experience
The Southern Alps, Mount Oxford, Oxford Forest and rivers are all close to our village which is found on the northern Canterbury Plains, meaning there are a wide range of outdoor recreational opportunities on our doorstep.
Cycling, mountain biking, climbing, hiking, fishing, horse riding, skiing and farm activities like quad biking and shooting, are just some of the activities you can easily participate in here.
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.
