Learn outside the classroom
At William Colenso College, we recognise that building confidence is a thrill and it’s worth the effort to be challenged physically and mentally to develop confidence and leadership skills.
We live in an amazing part of the world and the college makes full use of Hawke’s Bay’s diverse and wonderful natural environment to provide a safe, enjoyable and challenging learning experience in the outdoors.
