Boating NZ - - Boat World -

The Out­ward Bound school in Anakiwa, Marl­bor­ough Sounds, is to re­ceive a $3 mil­lion up­grade.

Project Re­fresh Anakiwa will take three years and will be the most sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments at the school since the 1980s. The work in­cludes a new dou­ble watch house, a new waka ama sea scheme, up­grades to staff ac­com­mo­da­tion and a new launch.

Project chair Dick Hub­bard says the work is nec­es­sary to fu­ture-proof Anakiwa and Out­ward Bound and en­sure the Trust can con­tinue its ex­cel­lent work with trans­form­ing New Zealan­ders’ lives.

Fund­ing for the re­fur­bish­ment is com­ing from pri­vate donors and pub­lic fundrais­ing.

More than 1,800 stu­dents par­tic­i­pate in Out­ward Bound per­sonal and pro­fes­sional cour­ses each year. Us­ing the moun­tains, bush and wa­ter­ways of Anakiwa as its class­rooms, the cour­ses are de­signed for people of all ages to reach their po­ten­tial through chal­lenges in the out­doors.
