Cashmere High School has a very impressive visual arts programme, in Years 12 and 13 students can specialise in art design, art painting, art photography and art print making.  A high number of our students achieve excellence in this area and go on to tertiary study in fine arts, design, animation, graphics and photography. 
Outdoor Education is available as part of our curriculum for those students interested in the great New Zealand outdoors.

Cashmere has a new gymnasium, a number of playing fields and tennis/netball courts available for sports.  

Canterbury stretches from ocean to the Alps, and is a land of plains and peaks. It is a place of variety and innumerable attractions.

Within two hours of an international airport, you can ski, play golf, bungy jump, go whitewater rafting, mountain biking, wind surfing, whale watching, and visit world-class vineyards and gardens. Where else in the world can you do that?

A must-see is New Zealand’s highest peak, Aoraki Mount Cook. Go hiking in Arthur’s Pass National Park or just wander around the picturesque bays and villages of Banks Peninsula. And then there’s New Zealand's second-largest city, Christchurch known as 'The Garden City'.

Christchurch is a beautiful city where you can cycle alongside the river, stay in good hotels and indulge in fine sophisticated dining, and a city where, just 15 minutes from the centre, you can scramble up mountain bike tracks or ride a wave at a surf beach.
