It is envisaged that these students will commit to either a 4-week or a 6-week course and an individualised teaching programme designed to meet each studentís particular needs. Although the school is not officially running yet we are in a position now to start taking a few students who wish to learn English. The cost for this is currently negotiable and students interested in a live-in English language experience based on a farm should contact Audrey via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Part of the Resource Consent will allow us to take children from NZ city schools for 3 day camps to learn environmental studies and in particular to understand the interaction of the land and the sea. Because we live on the Whangateau Harbour and close to the Marine Reserve at Goat Island it was felt that an environmental programme using practical teaching of permaculture and organics in conjunction with the local coastal environment would offer great benefits to young people. We hope this will all be ready by 2016.
The topics are include "working with clay as a building medium", an "introduction to Permaculture in the garden design", "incorporating the goddess into your spititual life", "an introduction to tarot and Astrology as part of understanding yourself", "Building a Mandela garden".

We are always looking for new topics and speakers so if you are interested in being a part of this educational programme please contact Audrey at firstname.lastname@example.org
International speakers are welcome and there is an openness to having any topic included as part of widening the education of the local area.
