Natalie here from the NZ Outdoor Instructors Association.

I am trying to develop contacts in the North Island for NZ homeschoolers.
We run assessments in various pursuits – including kayaking, bushcraft, rock climbing  and caving. As part of these assessment we require ‘model students’ so that our assesses can be assessed on their teaching ability in a certain pursuit. This is a great opportunity for people to receive a day of instructions at little or no cost.

We currently work with the Canterbury Home Educators Network and have had a very positive response from those students who have taken part in these activities.

We have a rock climbing assessment coming up on the 4th March in Kinloch, and we’re looking for approximately 16 students aged 13+ to take part. Do you have a contact for the Taupo Homeschoolers in particular?

I’d appreciate any contacts in the North Island that you think could be interested in these opportunities.

Kind regards,
Natalie Mathews
Executive Assistant
