Waitangi - A Place to Connect and Reflect

The connections and reflections that grow out of visits to Waitangi are deep. Sharing stories in the place where it all happened really brings history to life for students. As we explore the taonga of Waitangi and experience all it has to offer, students develop a real sense of past events and the people that have gone before us.

Honest discussions about what has happened in the past pave the way for a positive future. Students realise that they too can make a difference and shape the future of Aotearoa.  We see a real sense of pride and curiosity emerging during visits. Our team designs programmes in such a way that students do not leave Waitangi with just a list of facts and figures, but a feeling of having been personally touched in some way by their time here.
