Hinemoa Water Safety Programme

We have identified potential leaders at our school, and as a part of our leadership programme we have the privilege of being invited to take part in the Hinemoa Water Safety Program by the Te Waiariki Purea Trust. This programme is a 5 day programme. Four days next week and one the following Monday. This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to try new things and be challenged in new ways. Unfortunately we were limited to only 20 places. We know that we have lots more than 20 leaders here, and will be repeating the programme later in the year for our other leaders.

The programme is as follows:

  • Monday 1st - Lake Okareka, intro day and water activities

  • Tuesday 2nd - Lake Okareka, water safety, sit-on-tops, waka, and jumping off cliffs.

  • Wednesday 3rd - Ohau Channel, moving water safety.

  • Thursday 4th - Kaituna River (Troutpool), cliff jumping, river swimming safety, and practice.

  • Monday 8th - Beach day, Ohope.

There is no cost for this programme. Thanks to Te Waiariki Purea Trust for their sponsorship.

Board of Trustees

Our Boards of Trustees provide strategic leadership and direction to our school. The board works in partnership with the community, principal, teachers, support staff, and the government to ensure the best possible outcomes for all students.

Over the next few newsletters, we will be introducing our board to our school whānau.
