After learning English during the day, it is always nice to take part in some of our after school activities. Our English school organises a large variety of school and evening activities for our students, such as sports, concerts, and barbecues, visits to other towns and cities in the Bay of Plenty. Details of these activities for the week are put on the common room noticeboard and in the Thursday notices. These activities are a great way for you to have fun, get to know the other students, learn more English and find out about life around Rotorua and in New Zealand!
These are just some of the activities we plan to hold in the coming months. All of them are subject to numbers and weather conditions.

Rotorua has many different scenic walks to do; they are all beautiful and some are longer than others. We usually have a keen group of walkers at RELA so we try to do a variety of walks throughout the month for our students.
Sports can be quite popular at RELA also. We like to have different games throughout the month. Over the road we play soccer and volleyball. In the RELA grounds there are swingball, table tennis, badminton, petanque, gutter board, snooker and tennis racquets available.
There is always a lot happening around Rotorua too.
