Welcome to Gold

If you have made it this far you are very special!

We have limited resources at the school and those are heavily invested in bronze and silver, so if you want to go long and far then you will have to find your way there yourself. However, we can support practice expeditions to  Whirinaki and Waikaremoana.

20 conditions for expeditions gives some good guidance as to what is expected.

Getting your Gold qualifier requires a lot of paperwork, attention to detail and commitment. You need to see Mr Greenwood for an outline of the process. You can't leave this until the last minute.
