The first co-hort of He Ara Ākonga have headed for the hills with Sonia and Eliot. 🥳🌈🌏

"I got my new shoes on and suddenly everything's alright" 🎼

The ākonga are undertaking a range of challenging activities that really push their limits, create connection/tūhononga and aim to encourage them to get outside their comfort zone.

A part of the programme is building a positive relationship with a mentor. To find out more about mentoring a student with the Graeme Di**le Foundation Canterbury check out this link https://dinglefoundation.org.nz/mentoring/

Horizons Unlimited has funding spaces left to create an opportunity with your school for Yr 7-8. We can work with you to create a custom programme that works with your ākonga. Contact us at [email protected] to discuss what we could do with your class.

Enriching Local Curriculum (ELC) — formerly known as Learning Experiences Outside the Classroom (LEOTC) — supports community organisations to draw on local resources and expertise, to provide our tamariki with authentic, hands-on/minds-on learning experiences that complement the New Zealand Curriculum, Te Marautanga o Aotearoa, and Te Whāriki. Providers and school. We work in partnership to run educational programmes for ākonga.

Enriching Local Curriculum is the new-and-improved version of Learning Experiences Outside the Classroom. They have changed LEOTC to support the changing Education system. Unlike LEOTC, ELC programmes are not divided into subject areas. Rather, they are experiences that support broad curriculum outcomes.

Thanks again Bill!

The Graeme Di**le Foundation Canterbury He Ara Ākonga Group 1 Hapu headed out on their 5-day wilderness adventure. Their arrival to the Craigieburn's started in snow which made for a cold walk. During their first day the rangatahi were fortunate enough to undertake a Guided Walk of Kura Tawhiti by Nigel Harris which allowed them a deeper understanding of the history, kaitiakitanga and whenua of both Kura Tawhiti and Arthurs Pass and the involvement of both Māori and Europeans.

Thank you Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga for giving the rangatahi an opportunity to connect with Waipounamu/South Island.


Looking to upskill and enhance your First Aid Skills, Horizons is running their last Outdoor Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Course (PHEC) for the year based in Ōtautahi/Christchurch on the 14th - 18th November; and there are a few spots left.
