"A varied day with lovely, interesting activities.  Students had a mixture of physical activity and sitting down work"   B Swain - Runanga School.

"A lot of the students who struggle staying engaged really enjoyed and learned from the orienteering activity in particular.  Many thanks to you!"   Lara Hall - Westport North School.

"One student in particular who has not demonstrated any leadership or initiative really seemed to shine when it came to organising his group."   Jacqui Paterson - St Patrick's School.

"Once again a great programme for the students.  Will be back to do it again!"   Lois Pettigrew - North Loburn School.

"This was our first time bringing a group of students over to Shantytown for a camp and we were thrilled.  It is certainly a trip we will consider repeating.  The staff were excellent, the food delicious, the accommodation facilities very suitable and the programme rich and varied.  Thank you very much."  Kathryn Holdsworth - Rangi Ruru School.

"I have been coming for years with our school and love it!  I am learning something new every time I come.  It is absolutely amazing that I have not seen a repeat programme - every time I come with one of my grandchildren I experience a new programme"  A Grandmother accompanying a class visit - Runanga School.
