Anei a Wakatipu

We are honoured to welcome you to the 2019 NZATE conference in Queenstown. This is the first time a conference has been held in Central Otago, and we look forward to sharing the dynamism, scenery and open spaces of the Wakatipu Basin with educators from around the country.

Inspired by our unique surroundings, and alluding to the ever-shifting nature of education, this year’s theme is Landscapes. Conference is always an opportunity to celebrate the peaks of our professional endeavours as well as step back from the day-to-day and gain perspective.

The array of speakers, workshops, breakouts and activities will allow us to come together, explore and construct what the future landscapes of English education might look like.

At the same time, we’ll enjoy the finest aspects of the Wakatipu: sun, snow and pinot!

Welcome to Wakatipu High School

Our venue for Landscapes is Wakatipu High School at 47 Red Oaks Dr, Frankton. It's the only high school in Queenstown and in January 2018, it moved to a new 10,000sqm state of the art school at Remarkables Park.


The school is designed and built in accordance with the principles of an Innovative Learning Environment (ILE), the concept that encompasses the use of Flexible Learning Spaces as part of learning.
