Education outside the classroom


Fairhall has a broad range of safe and effective curriculum-based learning that extends beyond the classroom walls.

In Year 4, junior students begin to stretch their wings with a two night camp at Pine Valley outdoor centre. In Year 5 students spend four days at Mistletoe Bay in the Queen Charlotte Sound and in Year 6 students spend 4 days at Deep Creek in the Wakamarina Valley. 

Senior school students run a three yearly camping programme that incorporates a visit to Wellington, completing the Tongariro Crossing, and one other outdoor education experience. In the students final year at Fairhall School they complete a four day tramp of Abel Tasman National Park.
