"Courses are highly relevant and well planned, with activities designed with students’ safety in mind. The professional staff and ongoing nature of reflective practices help ensure the courses meet stakeholder needs."

"With the leadership skills and self-confidence I picked up, I went on to be the head boy of my school the next year. That's the thing I love about Whenua Iti, you go there to learn about something but you always leave with so much more"
