Contact: Brendon Ferguson, Hurunui College
Transport: Please get flight details to Brendon Ferguson and he will arrange for transport to and from Wainui.
Presentation: As part of the leadership course you are required to put together a presentation about your home town. This year we have decided you need to organise this presentation before you come to leadership camp. You will be given 2.5 to 3 minutes in which you may talk and show pictures of where you come from. This can be done as a slide show, power point or just photos, brochures and words. You will be judged on your content and your presentation. Equipment you need will be provided for you to use.
Star funding is able to be used for the entire cost of the course including accommodation and transport as there are two unit standards assessed as part of the course.
Adults accompanying students may bring along family members. There will be a charge for accommodation but it will be reasonable. Wainui is a great place for a holiday.
Schools may send three students initially but if there are beds available more students could be accommodated. Please ring Brendon Ferguson if you have more than 3 fantastic students. Please note students can only attend the Leadership once in their schooling and must be enrolled in an Area School at the time of the course.
All beds are allocated on a first in first served bases. There is no accommodation cost for teachers. Please note we could do with some extra adults at the course. If you are sending more than two students please consider sending a staff member as well.
