OUTWARD BOUND’S $ 3 MILLION UPGRADE More than 1,800 students participate in Outward Bound personal and professional courses...
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.
