William Pike Challenge Award 2018:

The William Pike Challenge Award is an outdoor activity based challenge program run over one school year. Select groups of students participate in outdoor activities, community service and develop a new sport, hobby or skill. The WPCA is a journey for New Zealand's youth to learn and grow in the outdoors. A gateway to new experiences and opportunities. A way of fostering a passion for the Kiwi Culture, for living life and a means of developing a positive youth culture for the nation.
