Papamoa College (Tauranga)
Our second year delivering 6-8 lessons each term, in both Terms 1 and 2. Its a rewarding experience witnessing the students' confidence building as they learn more about the ocean. They get a decent chance to find their sea-legs and develop a relationship with the open water.
Southwell School (Hamilton)
We had close to 150 students from Southwell School in Hamilton visit us over 3 days in January 2017. They participated in stand up paddle boarding, waka ama, and our guided hikoi around Mauao. We rotated three groups around each activity throughout the day. An amazing few days, both for us at East Coast Paddler, and the students of Southwell School.
