We intentionally pursue opportunities for our students to build the self confidence and the determination (“grit”) to approach life and learning positively. Getting our children outdoors is a key strategy. Our goal is to see every student participate in outdoor education experiences.
Due to COVID-19 the only camp we are running this year is the Year 8 Tongariro camp in November.
We are really pleased to have the opportunity to finish your child’s time at Huapai with this camp held at Tongariro National Park. We appreciate the timing of this camp in light of COVID financial pressures may not be the best. However, we believe this is something worth working towards. Our goal this year is to make this as achievable as possible. Without any sponsorship and fundraising, the cost will be $490.00 per head. We hope to be able to reduce this.
Parents are encouraged to make part payments within your child’s account in the school shop KINDO.
Go my sons (and daughters), burn your books.
Buy yourselves stout shoes.
Get away to the mountains, the deserts
And the deepest recesses of the earth.
In this way and no other will you gain
A true knowledge of things and
Of their properties.
Peter Severinus 1571 AD
