Adventure Tourism Leadership
Murchison Area School
Rata enrolled in the Adventure programme at Whenua Iti because she loves Outdoor Ed, but wasn’t able to do this at her school. She really enjoys the fact that the course is so practical and that she gets to meet other students from different schools. Her highlights so far have been the caving and rock climbing weeks and the fact that all the students have to leave their phones behind! She would recommend the course to any students who enjoy the outdoors and want to challenge themselves in this area.
“Next year I’d like to do the Level 3 Adventure programme to gain even more experience. I’m definitely considering the adventure tourism industry as a career choice.”
