- Program Description:
Roles Explained Education placements involve working in boarding schools supervising the pupils with their homework, assisting them in the boarding house, helping teachers in the classroom and organising extra-curricular activities. Life as a volunteer in a boarding school is not a 9-5 existence as you may be asked to supervise in the early mornings, ensuring the dorms are tidy and the students ready for breakfast. In the evenings you might be asked to assist with prep and supervise extra-curricular activities. The same is true of weekend duty when you may take pupils on outings. Outdoor Education: We have some placements in Outdoor Ed camps in NZ – duties are assisting groups of young campers with the various skills and activities, such as rope-climbing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, hiking, camping, archery etc. Some experience and skill in these activities is needed.
Aotearoa, “the Land of the Long White Cloud”, New Zealand is justly famous for its stunning scenery and dramatic landscape, featured so prominently in the Lord of the Rings films. Friendly, welcoming and laid back, New Zealand is the place for anyone looking for adventure and the adrenalin rush of outdoor sports. We have placements throughout the country in some wonderful schools.
