A high school experience abroad with a difference!

Whanganui Girls’ College is proud to be offering Academic Plus Volunteer™.

As an Academic Plus Volunteer™ student you will get to experience high school in New Zealand while making a difference, volunteering on local sporting, environmental or social projects. Plus you will have the option to volunteer in South America on your way home.
You will do up to 5 hours volunteering per week on your chosen project/s.

At Whanganui Girls’ College we are currently offering the following projects:


  • Hospice volunteer.  Work in the Hospice shop near our school. Visit http://hospicewanganui.org.nz/
  • Riding for the Disabled.  This is a not-for-profit organisation which provides opportunities for anyone with a disability to enjoy safe, stimulating, therapeutic horse riding and horse-related activities in New Zealand. You will generally spend one morning a week volunteering with riding for the disabled participants.  www.rda.org.nz/RDAgroups/Wanganui.htm
