About the Rural Campus

RC.jpgDilworth boys spend Year 9 at the Rural Campus,  located at the site of the former Hotel du Vin at the southern edge of the Hunua Ranges. In addition to academic learning, here the focus is on making the most of the natural, rural environment to enhance the experience for students.

The Rural Campus is also known asTe Haerenga, meaningThe Journey.

Whakatauki o Te Haerenga (philosophy of The Journey)

Kua eke i runga i te waka kotahi. Kia mahara tatou kei hoe whakatuara. Kia tika ano te tikanga o te hoe ki to te hunga o te ihu. Kei huri te hunga o te kei ki te hoe whakamuri.

Now that we have all embarked on one canoe, let us be careful that we do not pull backwards. Let us all pull in the same direction as those who sit in the bows; do not let the people in the stern paddle in the opposite direction.
