OUTside the classroom

With such an incredible area on our doorstep, it is no wonder we have an excellent outdoor education programme, providing the students at Mahurangi College many opportunities to learn the importance of group co-operation and self-reliance, all in our backyard. The aim is to challenge students to take risks, be brave, determined and adventurous and to link their learning about the world around them while experiencing New Zealand’s beautiful outdoors.

All students in Year 7 to 10 are offered opportunities to participate in outdoor education camps and trips, as well as take part in activities such as sailing, canoeing, snorkelling, abseiling, tramping, bush craft and much more. In the senior school, Year 13 students start
the year with a challenging outdoor education camp which encourages leadership, self-esteem, working cooperatively and is a highlight of the year.

The school provides the opportunity to become involved in the Duke of Edinburgh Awards. Various other activities, camps and field trips are organised as an important part of learning programmes in different subject areas.

CLUBS

Through clubs, students are extended and challenged beyond the classroom. They can try something new, seek even more knowledge, apply their learning in new contexts, hone their abilities and solve problems by thinking “outside the box”.
