The Outdoor Education Programme at Level 1 provides a full and exciting range of experiences that will challenge the students physically and mentally in a range of settings.

Our learning opportunities are based on the Mountainview Whānau-based system – Hiwi, Whenua and Moana.  We provide a balanced range of water, land and mountain-based experiences that also incorporate our school values.

The following extended learning opportunities are offered:

  • Skiing and Snowboarding

  • Tramping; navigation, cooking, survival

  • Mountain Biking on varied terrain 

  • Water-based paddling craft

  • Rock Climbing, Abseiling, and Bouldering   

  • Low Ropes


There is a $300 contribution for this course to cover the extended learning opportunities as listed above. Some students may be able to have some financial help with this, see Mr. Martin for more information.

24 Credits on offer over the whole year.   

**Alternative and other assessment opportunities are available dependent upon time and experience
