Sharon and the international girls loving their boat trip to the Tasman Glacier by Isla Huffadine

Mount Cook Trip

On September 21st the Year 12 Geography girls and 7 of our international students had a great trip to Aoraki Mt Cook National Park. The weather was fantastic on Monday and we had an amazing view of the mountain as we drove down into the park.

The geography students spent time in the local environment seeing things they had learnt about in lockdown. They were able to see in front of them what they had only learnt from the textbook. The international girls had a great time getting up close and personal with the Tasman Glacier on their boat trip.

We had all kinds of weather including sunshine, gale force winds and torrential rain but everyone had a great time. We topped the trip off with a visit to Benmore Station to see some merinos being shorn. This was a great introduction to the sights and smells of New Zealand’s rural environment. Thank you to Sharon Beaumont and all the students for a fantastic 3 days.
