The students, and teachers, along with their families from Windwhistle School, actively participate in various outdoor activities during the year. In winter they make the most of the snow and travel to Mt Hutt ski field where they not only discover the different techniques needed for skiing, but also the responsibilities of being on the mountain, the dangers they may face and how to keep safe. Principal Bronwen Seaward believes it is important to teach children the different aspects of the environment they live in and utilises the opportunities available throughout the year as part of the students’ education.
