Special Programme

Mt Aspiring Lodge

Tititea Outdoor Education Centre is based in the East Matukituki Valley on the outskirts of the Mt Aspiring National Park.

Dunstan High School was the first school in New Zealand to achieve Outdoorsmark Safety Audit Certification for its Outdoor Education programme. This is the national standard for safety auditing of adventure programmes and providers in New Zealand.

The school has comprehensive senior outdoor education programmes at Year 11, Year 12 and Year 13. In addition, all Year 10 students take part in a 5 day camp based at the Centre which introduces them to adventure activities, teamwork and develops their confidence as a class. Leadership training for Year 12 students is also offered at the end of each school year.

High Performance Class

The High Performance Class is a new initiative at Dunstan High School and is open to a group of selected Year 12 and 13 students who have a range of talents across sporting, cultural and academic fields.

Students have the opportunity to train and further develop their skills in their specific field of interest with a particular focus on the science behind elite performance.
