Senior Camp / Adventure Week / Ngahau Week

Every second year we hold our major EOTC (Education Outside the Classroom) programmes.  These include:

  • Senior Camp (years 5-6)

  • Adventure Week (years 3-4)

  • Ngahau Week (years 1-2)

Senior Camp

Seniors attend a week-long camp at Forest Lakes, Otaki.  Held in late November/early December, camp is an opportunity for students to have a unique experience away from the school learning environment and allows students to develop independence, confidence, self-reliance, leadership skills and team work.

All activities are designed to challenge the students while allowing them to safely develop new skills in an environment where the risk is carefully managed.   Some of the activities are taught by instructors to ensure the safety of students.  Activities include:

  • Horse riding
