    Transition Overview

    Learning the skills required to successfully enter the working world and/or tertiary study are further developed through this senior programme.

    A major component of the programme is outdoor education under the guidance of Peter Dawkings. The significant character building opportunities attached to “kiwi-style” outdoor education are unique to New Zealand and provide students with skills and experiences that make them sought after employees in many parts of the world.

    Other components of the programme include aviation, time management and driving safety.

    This programme is currently in a redevelopment phase with some exciting additions planned for 2017 and beyond, which include bee husbandry and hive construction, and other vocational pathways.
