Weekend fun is important for international students. Work Hard and Play Hard is an excellent recipe for study success.
That’s why Canterbury College cooperates with Dermot Hall to offer School Tours around the South Island, with several other language schools in Christchurch. All the College students who have joined Dermot’s trip had 100% satisfaction!
See photos and our previous blog report here:
Or check out Dermot’s photos from the Mt Cook/Tekapo tours here: www.englishschooltours.co.nz/MtCookLkTekapo.html
Don’t waste your weekend, visit Mt Cook and Tekapo, get to know some students from other countries and other schools in Christchurch. The photos are fantastic and the memories are unforgettable!
Dermot has another exciting opportunity: anyone interested in sky-diving could join a small group of other students to jump from 12000ft high near Pudding Hill, Methven!
We asked Dermot why he chose to create a school tours business, and he told us:
“I am an ex-teacher who taught English in NZ and Japan. I started taking students on South Island tours about 15 years ago and it has grown into a business I really enjoy. I often tell students I have the best job in the world ….. showing visitors from all over the world the beauty of our South Island ! Please join a tour and learn about New Zealand !
Our most popular weekend tour is the Tekapo/Mt Cook Tour and my personal all-time favourite place is Abel Tasman National Park. Day tours to the seaside town of Kaikoura for whale-watching and Akaroa for a Dolphin Cruise are favourites too!”
Did you know: “New Zealand’s highest mountain, Aoraki Mt Cook, stands 3754 metres tall. Its Maori name – Aoraki – means ‘Cloud Piercer’.”
