Enrichment opportunities

Waterwise

TPS participates in the Waterwise programme based at Lake Pupuke. Year Six students take turns attending these popular sessions on Wednesday afternoons between 11:30am - 2:30pm during Terms One and Four. Students learn sailing skills (in an Optimist), kayaking skills and basic water safety. Waterwise programmes are very adult intensive and we are often on the look out for parent help. The tasks are not difficult and no special experience is necessary, as an instructor will be with you at all times.
