Programme Content

Explore sustainability issues through a variety of outdoor learning experiences

Dual Enrolment programmes are FREE if you're in Years 11, 12 or 13 and a great way to earn NCEA credits and get a feel for tertiary study, while you’re still at school.

This programme explores sustainability with a focus on outdoor leadership. Through a variety of games, team-building activities and reflective workshops you'll become accustomed to working collaboratively in groups. Some of the outdoor activities you'll participate in include surfing, snorkelling and tramping.

This programme is delivered one day per week (Fridays 9am - 3pm).

*Places are limited and funding is dependent on availability. Some courses may incur costs, depending on the learner's eligibility.
