Zoo School


Zoo School is Orana Wildlife Park’s Learning Experiences Outside The Classroom (LEOTC) education programme supported by the Ministry of Education. Our qualified teachers provide custom written, interactive learning experiences for students ranging from Year 1 to Year 13. Our teachers work with your students out in the Park, facilitating their learning as they observe and interact with the animals.



Zoo School is open for business as usual and we would love to see your ākonga here.  The Park has a few guidelines in place around mask wearing, please click here for our FAQ’s.  To contact our education team directly to book or discuss a Zoo School visit, please email school@oranawildlifepark.co.nz




We have set up another website that lets us create fun and interesting activities for students over here that includes live-streams.
