Student Trustee Challenges for 2017

Application open Monday, 10 October 2016 

In conjunction with the Spirit of Adventure Trust, NZSTA offers 5 day residential programmes for student trustees.  These programmes are designed to give student trustees the skills, knowledge and experience to rise to the challenge associated with their role on the board.  Having fun, gaining leadership skills and the opportunities to network with other student trustees throughout New Zealand are key features of these residential programmes.  These programmes are held in January each year.

Applications with Spirit of Adventure Trust will open Monday, 10 October 2016.  This will allow all schools to have completed the 2016 Student Election process and the Student Trustee to have taken office. 

NZSTA will meet the course cost for 120 Student Trustees to attend one of the three voyages.  Please read the Terms and Conditions and Cancellation Policy.  Each student and/or board is responsible for the cost and arrangements of all travel to and from the Spirit of Adventure in Auckland, and any accommodation required pre or post the voyage.
