Here we are again, at the end of yet another epic year of adventures, struggles and good times. One thing we do every year, here at Twizel Area School, is finish the year off with a bang! Outdoor Education Week 2021 is set to provide our ākonga with experiences and opportunities that many places can't provide. We are exceptionally lucky to have access to some of the best outdoors that Aotearoa can offer.

On Monday, 6th December, our annual Outdoor Education Week will start. We will divide the Middle School into six teams and establish the team leaders to help guide the teams around the myriad of challenges on offer.

School will start and finish at the normal time for the duration of the week. Buses will function as normal.

Throughout the week students will be participating in the following activities:

  1. Kayaking, sailing, raft building, canoeing, swimming
  2. Mountain biking
  3. Tramping
  4. Murder Mystery Challenge
  5. Team building activities
  6. Frisbee Golf
  7. Photography
  8. Fishing

The entire week is designed to place students into managed, challenging spaces where they will be encouraged to function as a team. All activities are challenge by choice and use the experimental learning sequence.
