Mangawhai Club offers $10,000 scholarship


Yvette Urlich-721A number of local clubs and organisations have benefitted over recent years from funding grants distributed by The Mangawhai Club, who have now instigated an Outward Bound Scholarship providing a unique opportunity for one local male and one female in the 16 to 18 year age group to apply to attend the school for three weeks in July.

This is expected to be widely sought-after and comes fully paid by the Club at $10,000 per successful applicant so screening will be stringent – from health to personal details – but the successful applicants can be assured of a great opportunity to add a new dimension of focus as their lives progress beyond school years.

The Outward Bound School at Anakiwa, nestled in the Marlborough Sounds, has, since 1962, been something of an outdoor training ground for young people to gain confidence on both a personal and team level, helping participants find resilience and step outside their comfort zones by participating in a number of new challenges for personal achievement. And they make new friendships likely to last a lifetime.

Outward Bound is not about becoming an extreme-sports athlete but simply about meeting and beating new challenges on a personal level and learning to cope in different situations.

Tramping, kayaking, rock-climbing, sailing, orienteering, finding skills you never knew you had and developing a new determination.

Outward Bound offers a mind, body and soul experience like no other while at the same time being committed to health and safety, extending boundaries of participants lives and doubtless having an influence on their future choices. Plus, successfully completing the course will look good on any CV.

The Youth Committee is the three person selection panel and
