The Liger Leadership Discovery Club is for young people who want to experience our way of learning. They may have the potential to become New Zealand’s future entrepreneurs and leaders who will contribute positively to the country and the world.
Some students who attend the Discovery Club may go on to be students at the Academy, although this is not guaranteed.
The Discovery Club will is a one-day programme that operates throughout the year during term times. Typically, a day will be from 9am - 3pm. We may also offer some short residential or outreach programmes to meet demand.
Learners remain enrolled in their primary school, and our facilitators communicate with the regular classroom teacher to ensure attendance is appropriately noted on the school roll. The Discovery Club programme aims to complement and enhance the regular education a learner is receiving and set them up for success in secondary school – whether that is at Liger Academy or elsewhere.
Students will explore engaging, experiential, project-based activities that address community issues and needs. These blocks will typically last around eight weeks.
Students attending the Discovery Club remain enrolled in their school. Our Liger teachers communicate with these schools to let them know what they are learning at the Discovery Club so that any opportunities for collaboration can be explored.
