School use of foreshore areas


We are committed to assisting schools in furthering the educational opportunities for all students.  In order to achieve this commitment, we provide all schools access to the foreshore and beach areas within our remit, enabling them to hold curriculum related activities  at no cost.

So that we can monitor the groups using the foreshore and beach areas we ask that a School Usage Booking is made, this information is also used to inform future planning such as requirements for infrastructure and services.

Our aim is to make this a straightforward process. If you have already collated information on the planned activity, please feel free to simply email a copy to

Otherwise, you can fill in the booking form here

  • Activities held during the school term on a weekday
  • Activities related to the school’s curriculum
