Visiting New Zealand
Christchurch, the 'Gateway City' to New Zealand's spectacular South Island
Christchurch is ideally situated for students to enjoy a wide range of activities at all times of the year. Seafield has an active social programme with various after class activities organised every week and regularly on weekends.
Depending on the season, students can enjoy the beach, golf, tennis, horse riding, sailing, surfing, windsurfing, farm visits, fishing, shopping, jetboating, canoeing, art and crafts, city sightseeing or just relaxing.
A little further afield, Seafield-arranged trips include snowboarding/skiing, whale watching, harbour cruises, caving, hot alpine springs and visits to popular tourist places like Queenstown, Fiordland & Abel Tasman National Park. Excursion/activity costs are additional to school fees.
Activities are arranged several weeks in advance. Click the above Activities Calendar link to view upcoming school-arranged activities. We have also included public holidays and special events on the calendars to help you plan your time in New Zealand.
