Tihoi clothing and equipment

Please check with the School Shop for advice on the requirements for clothing and equipment for Tihoi before making a purchase. Many parents in the past have made purchases that have turned out to be unsuitable for the Tihoi environment.

The School Shop sources and provides the majority of the outdoor recreational clothing and equipment requirements for students attending Tihoi Venture School. This has been done in consultation with the Tihoi Venture School staff who know what equipment and clothing is best suited for the Tihoi experience.
