Hamilton Zoo welcomes education groups and offers discounted rates Monday to Friday during the school term. Book an education visit and inspire your students. The learning possibilities are endless - from writing, design, mathematics to conservation and sustainability.
Our Education team provides:
- Curriculum based education designed to meet individual class requirements
- A stimulating and interactive classroom with loads to see, learn and touch
- Waiwhakareke Natural Heritage Park as an outdoor classroom
- Friendly and knowledgeable NZ trained teachers.
Come along to one of our FREE 'Meet the Keeper' talks and learn more about animal behaviours, personalities, feed patterns and conservation issues as you watch their feeding or enrichment. Seeing an animal up close is a magical experience. Add an animal encounter to your education visit, at the special education rate of just $5 per person and engage your students in a way they'll remember. (Contact us for more information on what kind of encounters are available for your school group.)
Visits from pre-school and tertiary groups are also welcome and we offer a discounted rate, available Monday to Friday. Bookings are essential. For our pre-school visits information sheet, click here. For our tertiary visits information sheet, click here.
