Year 10 Outdoor Education Programme

November 24, 2023

Week 9 (or Week 8 for the Abel Tasman week 8 group)

Year 10 Outdoor Ed is coming up. Please discuss with your sons the finer details of his trip. For example, if he is on one of the overnight trips he will by now have been placed in a small group and this group will be cooking for themselves. Do they have a menu plan? Do they have a camping stove and pots sorted? Who is responsible for picking up the gas for the stove? The details are important at this stage. Staff have been guiding students as to suitable food and gear to bring, during our pre-trip meetings, which are ongoing.

There are still a number of health + consent forms and payments outstanding. Please action this asap if that applies to you.

We are keen for all students to participate in these trips. If you are in need of financial support, or if you are willing to sponsor another student in need of support, please contact the Headmaster’s Executive Assistant, Claire Shakespeare, at
