Course Costs and Equipment

The course presently costs NZD400.00 per semester for Year 12 and Year 13. This includes $50.00 equipment surcharge for our international students. This surcharge means we can lend you some of the equipment which would be difficult for you to bring from home; a mountain bike or sleeping bag for example.

We recommend that you bring the following items with you if you are a keen tramper, as you are bound to use them in your holiday time as well; walking boots [though these can be hired] and weather proofed jacket. You can hire a sleeping bag and a backpack from school or borrow one from your host family.
