Ski Camp 2015

On Wednesday 12th , Thursday 13th and Friday 14th August, the majority of our International students took part in our annual ski camp to Mt Ruapehu, Whakapapa ski fields. The weather was amazing, with awesome skiing for the first two days. The weather was not so kind on Friday, so a welcome stop at Taupo Hot Pools and pizza for lunch finished up a great trip.

This is an annual initiative organised by Education Tauranga, involving all the region's international students from primary school through to secondary school. It was a great event with a chance for our boys to mix with other International Students from the Bay.
