Winter Ski Programme

As a school we believe our winter ski and boarding programme is something unique to Queenstown School, offering students an experience that is second to none. The school's ski programme has run successfully for many years giving students opportunities to experience a true winter experience in an extraordinary alpine environment.

We are specifically looking at a Ski Programme that develops the "Keys Competencies" of Participating and Contributing, Relating to Others and Managing Self.

Students use these competencies to live, learn, work and contribute as active members of their communities. More complex than skills, the competencies draw also on knowledge, attitudes and values in ways that lead to action. These continue to develop over time, shaped by interactions with people, places, ideas and things. Our students will be challenged and supported to develop them through the context of our ski and boarding programmes.

We will run a programme that is innovative at the Year 7 level. We will endeavour to cater for all of our students' needs and next learning steps.


It is paramount that our students are able to participate and contribute too, and experience being a team member looking out for others and keeping themselves safe in an alpine environment as well as having fun.
