All day every Friday, we will visit a different NZ landscape. Details to be confirmed during 4.1, but the initial plan is to visit:
Volcano (Banks Peninsula)
Limestone (Kura Tāwhiti/ Castle Hill + Cave Stream)
Braided River (Waikirikiri/ Ashley)
Hot Springs (Hanmer)

As well as taking in the spectacular NZ scenery, we will also learn about some of the Earth Science involved in each area. This could be particularly useful to students thinking about studying Science, Earth and Space Science or Geography at NCEA level (or beyond) in the future.

Students will need to pay entry costs Hanmer Springs.

Parental assistance with transport is likely to be needed.
