Adventure Activities in Taupo

Taupo is known as a recreational paradise so we can offer a wide range of activities to our students.  Ski fields are just over an hour's drive away - world famous trout fishing is available in the Taupo and Turangi areas - internationally renowned golf courses - and of course that classic New Zealand activity, the bungy jump!

Students can participate in our Full Time English + Activities Programme and have all their activities pre-paid, or participate on a "pay as you go" basis, taking part in activities after class and on the weekends and paying for themselves.

The school is happy to organise any activity schedule for students - just ask!
