When is the Horizons Week Fiji Inspection Trip?
Monday 29 October – Thursday 1 November 2012

Who is the Inspection trip for?
The trip is for individuals from schools who are interested in taking a group of their students on the Horizons Week program in November 2013. You will fit into one of the two categories below:
  • A teacher of Years 7 or 8
  • A member of the Senior Management team within Primary, Intermediate or Integrated Schools with responsibility for overseas educational trips
What is the purpose of the Inspection trip?
Horizons Week would like to provide schools and teachers with first hand experience of what to expect from the Horizons Week program. We aim to provide inspection trip participants with:
  1. Reassurance in the suitability of the event for their students
  2. Reassurance in the safety measures, risk assessment, safety management and incident management processes in place
  3. Reassurance in the educational benefits for students
  4. Reassurance in the overall value of the experience for students
We value your feedback as educators in all aspects of the Horizons Week program and we will welcome your feedback on the inspection trip.

What is the cost of the Inspection trip?
There is a very small contribution cost of NZ$150/ AUD$150 per participant on the inspection trip. This cost will be taken off the final balance of your group booking so in effect the inspection trip is free.

Please note: Lunches and beverages during the trip will be at your own expense.

Why is there a film crew accompanying us?
BGI Productions are accompanying us on the trip and will be filming certain aspects of the 4 days. The footage will be edited into a 4 - 5 minute film to promote Horizons Week 2013.

Register your interest
There will be a maximum of 12 people on the inspection trip, including a two man film crew and two Horizons Week staff. Therefore, spaces are limited and will operate on a first come - first serve basis. To confirm your intent in participating on the inspection trip please fill in a quote request form or simply email us on

Payment details for contribution
Once your position had been confirmed we will require a payment of NZ$150 / AUD$150
