Today's student tomorrow's kaitiaki (guardian). We are incredibly proud of our Education Programme that actively connects with students across the country to provide a tangible experience of what Aotearoa/New Zealand once looked like and what the achievement of predator free status will look like in years to come. In 2023 we welcomed 4000 students through our programme.

We welcome all ages of students and can be flexible with the content of sessions if you are looking to cover any specific standards or scaffold students into completing internal assessments. Email us to find out more or check out the options below for more details.
