EXCLUSIVE TO ST PAUL’S COLLEGIATE SCHOOL, HAMILTON, Tihoi Venture School is a unique 18-week programme for year 10 boys removing them from technology and connecting them with the outdoors. The programme combines academics, outdoor and social activities to give young men confidence, build their resilience and develop their independence giving them a valuable head start into their senior years.
Students must be enrolled at St Paul’s Collegiate School in Year 9 in order to experience Tihoi Venture School, which is a compulsory course for the school’s Year 10 boys.
On occasion there are some Tihoi spaces available for students who are entering Year 10 and are not yet enrolled at St Paul’s. Applications for Year 10 boys can be submitted and if spaces are available the school will contact you to arrange an interview. Any enrolment at Year 10 must come with a commitment from the family that the student will complete their secondary schooling at St Paul’s.
Please note, spaces for St Paul’s and Tihoi Venture School are limited and in high demand. It is strongly encouraged that parents enrol their child at St Paul’s in Year 9 to avoid disappointment.
Come along to the Tihoi Venture School Open Day to see the programme in-action (as seen on TVNZ's Sunday.) Those interested in attending must register below to secure a space. The next Tihoi open day will be held on Sun 15 September 2019.
