Huntley School

Primary (Years 1-6, approx. age 5-10 )

Huntley draws a small number of students from overseas each year. Currently there are boys from Korea, Hong Kong and USA. In recent years we have also had boys from Japan, Thailand,Rwanda, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia and Australia, some of whom were New Zealand boys whose parents resided overseas. All boys whose first language is not English are given ten English as a Second Language (ESL) lessons per week. These lessons are in small groups. The rest of the lessons are in the normal classes. This total immersion programme is proving to be extremely effective. The boys’ English improves rapidly whilst living at school 24 hours a day with more than one hundred English-speaking boys their own age.

The Manawatu is heartland New Zealand. A landscape that sweeps from the sea to the Tararua Ranges, it offers an exciting range of adventure activities.

Choose from rafting, kayaking, blokarting, horse trekking, mountain biking, rock climbing and a host of other activities.

If you want to experience country life, it’s all around you. Go to a real stock auction. This is where the farmers buy and sell their farm animals, gathering around pens as the auctioneer rattles off bids. Stock auctions are one of New Zealand’s oldest traditions, dating back to the 1880s.

Or you could find a farmstay and meet farmers whose families have been on the land for generations.

There's a great diversity of attractions in Manawatu. In the vibrant student city of Palmerston North you can explore the world’s first museum devoted to rugby. If you’re a garden lover there are some fabulous public and private gardens to see, including one of the top rose gardens in the world. And a little way down the road around Horowhenua you’ll find such quirky attractions as an owl park, a farm devoted to Clydesdales and a fully operational Dutch windmill.
