Rural Education Activities Programme (REAP)

REAP provides our Gifted and Talented students with outstanding learning experiences. The REAP programmes offer our students the opportunity to work alongside gifted and talented students from the other schools within our community. The students enjoy meeting, and working with other like minded students; this experience helps to develop their self esteem and belief in themselves.

The programmes help to support the students learning at school, while also enriching greatly their learning experiences.
The students have found the following learning programmes to be motivating, rewarding and enjoyable:

Wakatipu Winter Challenge project
Maths Minds Alive
Junior Thinkers
Creating Science
Expression through Art
Learning about language through poetry
When a new programme is offered, the teachers consider the criteria for selection, and nominate students who match this criteria and who would benefit from the programme.
