The values of the Spirit of Adventure Trust align closely with many of the Orewa College values. This makes it easy for us to support several students each year who want to go on a 10-day trip with the Spirit of Adventure. Not only do the students meet friends and have wonderful experiences, they also are immersed in a quest for: excellence by aiming high and persevering in the face of difficulties; integrity by being honest, responsible, accountable and acting ethically; impact by making a difference socially and emotionally; environmental sustainability by learning about care for the environment; innovation through thinking critically, creatively and reflectively; diversity as found in our cultures, languages, and heritages, and community and participation for the common good. Three students have already been out on trips this year. Lachlan Horne, Olivia Mount and Jannik Wittgen have all written about their experiences and you can read about these here.
