Outward Bound!

Each year, Gap Year programme participants go on placement outside Wellington for 3-4 weeks. Last month, Aroha and Tim went to Outward Bound. Aroha describes the experience as follows: 

Thanks to the amazing sponsors who gave me the opportunity to attend Outward Bound. We participated in many activities, including sailing, high ropes, kayaking, co-steering, rock climbing, solo (having to survive in the bush by yourself for three days) and service. Outward Bound gives you the opportunity to look into your future and push yourself towards your dreams, as well working to achieve your small goals. It was a completely new experience which gave me a new perspective on Aotearoa and helped me be more definite about life decisions. In a way, being at Outward Bound has changed my life. – Aroha
