Whakatane High, to at­tend the Tan­garoa Watch pro­gramme at Anakiwa in the South Is­land.

Stu­dents are nom­i­nated by their schools and se­lected by Out­ward Bound­staffmem­bers based on their com­mit­ment to their school and the com­mu­nity, with demon­strated fi­nan­cial need and an op­por­tu­nity to im­prove their self-con­fi­dence.
