A busy Term 4 for our Education Team

The Cultural Performance was a highlight for Wakatipu High School; our performers are always happy to have photos with groups after the show

Our education team looks forward to a busy Term 4 and meeting with the many school groups booked in for our various programmes. The first group to participate in our Education Experience this term came all the way from Queenstown – Year 10 students from Wakatipu High School.  They all agreed that being at Waitangi made history much “more real” for them as they pictured life in the Bay of Islands leading up to the signing of The Treaty/Te Tiriti.

This awesome group of Year 10 students visited the Waitangi Treaty Grounds as part of a 5 -day trip to Northland, with an exciting schedule of activities and visits to historical sites. Their trip was booked booked through the Bay of Islands Education Network, a ‘one stop school trip shop’ for teachers planning educational experiences for their students in the Bay of Islands. The network organises all activities and accommodation, a valuable service for those travelling from afar who may be unfamiliar with the area.
