Environment

Kaikorai Valley College is set in a superb natural park-like environment, which includes the Kaikorai Stream.

We are proud to have the largest and best grounds of any school in Dunedin.

The College makes great use of our environment to deliver the curriculum and works towards our environmental commitments and kaupapa as an Enviroschool. Our students are increasingly taking the lead to make decisions for enhancing our environment.

Kaikorai Valley College is ideal if you:

  • Enjoy learning outside the classroom.

  • Have an interest in the environment.

  • Wish to prepare for sustainable living.

  • Enjoy being part of outreach activities.

The school strives to utilise its splendid natural setting as a context for student learning. That learning raises awareness of our global responsibilities investigating local issues and responding with local action. An Enviroschool since 2010, Kaikorai Valley College has built on its long history of active citizenship by embedding environment and sustainability themes in student learning. An important aspect of those themes is in seeking out partnership projects with our community.

In recent years Kaikorai Valley College has developed its own Urban Farm on land at the back of the school. This is a unique and outstanding learning environment that has become a valuable and popular part of the Kaikorai Valley College learning experience. Further details can be found under the Urban Farm section on this website.
