At POET, our people are key to our success and are committed to creating the best possible outcomes for students, schools, and communities alike.
Investing in the Future
School camp can be a pretty daunting experience for a wide eyed and nervous year 9 student. Earlier this year, we talked to the Ngaruawahia High School head Girl, Aomi Irani about her experiences on camp.
We were very conscious of the fact, that for many, this was potentially their first camping experience, first time in a tent, or even potentially the first time of travelling outside of Hamilton. So it was important we observed each other’s actions and made sure our own reflected that of a positive member of the camp community.
Funding makes us function, both strategically and operationally so we believe it’s really important to spend wisely. We respect the trust our supporters have in us and we endeavour to maintain the highest standards of transparency and accountability. Click below to view the 2020 consolidated accounts:
Carrying On Through Covid
To support our work we run an annual fundraiser – the NZ Mountain Film Festival. However, Covid threw us a curve-ball in 2020 and despite lots of planning and optimism, at the last moment we were faced with cancelling. In a blog post earlier this year we shared what we learnt about running an event at Level 2.
Our Sponsors & Supporters
The Perry Outdoor Education Trust is grateful to have the community’s support as we couldn’t carry out the work we do without the generosity of our sponsors, our grantors, and business and non-profit partners. To show our appreciation, please see below those organisations who offer tremendous financial support.
