From exploring the galaxy and our national institutions, to seeing Kiwi and Tuatara in their natural habitat just minutes from the CBD, our capital city Wellington is packed with original and fun learning opportunities for your class.
The capital is compact, walkable and well-connected to train, bus, ferry and air routes. There are even resources like the Sculpture Trail students can use to enhance their exploration.
There are heaps of student-friendly low cost accommodation options in and around the CBD: from the YHA and backpackers in town to nearby marae and retreats. It’s the same for eating options - there’s something for everyone.
What more can you say? We give schools unique access to New Zealand’s national institutions: Parliament, Te Papa, the National Library, National Archives, Reserve Bank Museum, Government House, National War Memorial, Holocaust Centre of New Zealand, National Portrait Gallery, Supreme Court.
Learning and exploring can be mixed up with parks, green spaces, cinemas, bowling alleys, laser strike, swimming, waterfront, sculpture, swimming and sport. All within walking distance of the city centre.
There are excellent learning experiences happening across Wellington every day. We’ve got expert educators at our museums, galleries, zoo, observatory, creative tech and green spaces, waiting to guide your students through a great curriculum-linked session.
