Kiwi Birdlife Park, New Zealand

Today, we visited the Kiwi Birdlife Park, in the heart of Queenstown. It was established in 1986 to display and protect the native New Zealand flora and fauna. It just would not be New Zealand without Kiwi. We had the opportunity to experience New Zealand’s most iconic bird. A bird keeper shared some amazing facts about these kiwi and we were able to watch them in a dark area (they are afraid of the light and loud noises).

We also had the chance to see some fascinating, endangered wildlife (tuatara, yellow crowned kakaraki, Antipodes Island parakeet, etc.) in an entertaining conservation show. Mark T. was even able to watch a bird land on his arm. The students wandered the beautiful pathways to see many different types of trees, flowers, and birds. A very interesting afternoon!

Thank you for your interest in Blyth Academy Global High School.

After careful consultation with our staff and vendors, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Global High School program for the 2020-21 school year. Given significant and widespread disruptions to global travel, and the uncertainty of when operations will return to normal, it is simply not possible to plan and operate these programs to our high standards of safety and execution.

For more information, or to talk through possible options, please contact the Admissions team via or 416-960-3552. The Admissions team can also speak to you about options to complete the current academic year if this is of interest as well.
