Kauri Whānau Ski day Reminders

Our ski day is this coming Monday - September 16.

If the mountain is open we are going! Check the Mt Hutt Ski Report around 6am to confirm things at all go.

Be at school by 7:20am. Meet by the Sandwich Rd school carpark. Children must check in with their homegroup teacher and then they can board a bus, or go to the driver of the car they are assigned to.

Gear Check:

  • thermals - at least two layers on top half and one layer on bottom half
  • long socks
  • weatherproof pants
  • warm weatherproof jacket
  • lace-up shoes
  • gloves or mittens
  • goggles or sun-glasses
  • sunscreen
  • optional neck muff or scarf
  • long hair tied up 
  • water bottle
  • hearty lunch
  • The journey each way is 2 hours so a book, small game or small device to play on can be brought. All devices will stay on the locked bus during the day.
  • Money for a hot drink or snack at the cafe. Children take responsibility for money. The cafe is expensive, so bring lunch.
  • Own ski gear if you have it

Plan for the day:

  • 7:20 arrive at school, on Sandwich Rd. Buses and cars leave at 7:30am. 
  • 9:30 - 9:45 we will arrive at the ski field car park
  • 10:00 morning tea on the deck
  • 10:15 ski hire sorted (those with their own gear will meet a parent for a short ski)
  • 11:00 lessons start. Everyone has a lesson, even the experienced skiers.
  • 12:30 lunch on the deck or in the cafe
  • 12:45 - 3:30 Have fun skiing with your friends.
  • 3:30 return gear and back to the bus
  • 4:00 buses leave
  • 6:00 - 6:30 we arrive back at school
