Skiing /Snow Boarding

Annual Ski /Boarding trips

Each year we aim to do three days up at Mount Ruapehu. Once children are competent on skis, they have the choice to switch to snow boarding. Through our ski days, we aim to meet some of the Health and Physical Education outcomes within the Movement Concepts and Motor Skills strand and the Personal Health and Physical Development strand.

As our children visit the mountain from Year 1 onwards, they are able to build each year, on what they have achieved in previous years, and so by Year 8 we have students who are confident, capable skiers or boarders. They also grow other abilities such as how to assess risk, manage themselves in an outdoor challenging environment and how to support and look out for each other.
