Navy Adventure Challenge

The Navy Recruiting Organisation is hosting a Navy Adventure Challenge that began today and will run through to Friday 22 April 2005 inclusive exposing 40 high profile students from around New Zealand to a behind the scenes insight into Navy Careers. The aims of the Challenge are to provide each student with an insight into Navy Careers and the Navy work environment; display a variety of activities and tasks that illustrate how the Navy is an exciting, interesting and enjoyable place to work; provide candidates with an insight of what is required of them under training should they decide to join either as an Officer or Rating; and provide the students with a variety of challenges to build their confidence in a team environment.

Starting with a 'Wakey Wakey" at 0545 every morning, the many activities over the action packed week include a Powhiri at the Te Taua Moana Marae, tours, presentations and briefings in all the Navy's Branch and Trade Training Schools, Bridge Simulator, Damage Control (Fire and Flood), New Entry and Officer Training Schools, Sea Survival, Team Building exercises at the Whangaparaoa Training Centre, introduction to Naval traditions, ship tour plus a visit to the Naval Support Flight at Hobsonville. Photos and articles will be sent to the hometown papers of the students attending on completion of the Navy Adventure Challenge.
