Programs and Activities

At Waihi Academy we recognise and value the importance of experience-based education
Tea Ceremony
The Tea Ceremony program is an introductory experience to the ancient way and art of the Chinese Tea Ceremony. Students will learn about the history of Chinese Tea, some basic facts about Chinese Tea, and then experience for themselves a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony where they will have the opportunity to taste different types of Chinese Tea. This program exposes students to another culture, allowing students to learn about and experience a facet of Chinese culture, adding to their world view.
Leadership program
Waihi Academy can offer a Leadership Program for students which will cover different aspects and qualities that are required for good leadership. This is an interactive program where students will get involved throughout, at the end of it, they will put into practice what they learnt in the program in the form of a performance. This program can be discussed with us and tailored to suit your needs.
Cultural activities
Waihi Academy offers a range of Cultural Activities, these activities are for students to get a taste of Chinese culture and doing so in a fun and interactive way. Activities include Chinese Calligraphy, arts and crafts and various traditional activities such as traditional sports. Through these activities, students will get to learn and experience new things from another culture, diversifying their viewpoint and thinking.
Team-building activities are available in different formats, these activities aim to improve communication, encourage working with others, contribution and participation. Team-building activities can be discussed with us and an activity can be arranged based on your requirements. A previous activity that has been run was mural painting, where students had to work together to complete a large mural project. This artwork is currently on display at Waihi Academy for all visitors to see. On completion of the Team-building activity, students will feel a sense of accomplishment whilst building comradery in the process.
