Find Your Passion, Be Supported and Inspired

Situated in Te Manahuna, The Mackenzie Basin, with Te Tiritiri-o-te-Moana, the Southern Alps at our door, our outdoor environment's beauty and closeness greatly influence our kaimahi, ākonga and learning programmes.

Our vision is to developing future leaders by nurturing their emerging passions. We seek to enable our learners to be inspired, collaborate with others and achieve their personal goals.


The New Build plans are taking shape, and we are now able to share a selection of design images with the school community.
