For Schools

We love having schools, kindergartens and early learning centres visit us here at Pukaha Mount Bruce.  Choose from the awesome options below for your students - Primary & Intermediate schools have two great options to choose from - either a daytime experience or an overnight adventure!

Day education visit

A day education visit includes having a Visitor Experience ranger as your guide throughout your visit.  Our Huia Room is made available as your base for the day.

Your ranger will welcome you to Pukaha and be with you at all times when you are in the reserve.

We only take one school per day with 1 ranger provided for approximately every 25 children.  We prefer the maximum number of children on each day to be 50 although do talk to us if you have more coming through.  We're very flexible and happy to help you plan your visit with us.

We charge only $5 per student and all teachers/parents/caregivers attending within a ratio of 1 adults to 6 children will be free of charge. Any adults above this ratio will be charged at normal entry prices.  Our Schools day education visit is designed to be delivered to kindergarten, primary and intermediate aged students.
