The Founders’ Walkway Project

The Founders’ Walkway is an exciting project aimed at enhancing the overall Woodford House experience. The proposed walkway will take people on a picturesque journey from the moment they enter our gates, through the grounds’ flora and fauna, and up to the School.

The Founders’ Walkway will honour our Founders and rich history as part of next year’s 125th Anniversary celebrations. In addition to celebrating this significant milestone, the walkway will serve several other purposes:

  • An Educational Outdoor Classroom where students can learn about their environment, sustainability and ecological restoration.
  • A safe and pleasant avenue for students to walk up to the School from the front gate.
  • A way of promoting health and wellbeing as the walkway will encompass a fitness trail.
  • A special place that the wider community, such as local schools and community groups, will benefit from.

The Founders’ Walkway is an ambitious $500,000 project that requires the support of our community. If you are interested in supporting this project, please visit our Give a Gift page or email: foundation@woodford.school.nz
