Otiwhiti Station Land Based Training School

Our Facilities


In 2014 “The Hood” was moved onto site at Otiwhiti from Flock House in Bulls. Built in 1974 the Hood has been renovated and provides comfortable single room accommodation. Cadets share a communal kitchen, lounges, bathrooms, drying room, laundry and is centrally heated.

The cookhouse

Located next to the Hood the cadets are provided with all their meals Monday to Friday with an opportunity for cadets to cook for themselves during the weekend. The cookhouse is a great gathering place for cadets, staff and visitors.

The classroom

Another integral part of the school is the classroom facilities, originally Otairi School, closed in 2010 and has been purchased by the DJ & VM Duncan Family. The school facilities include a swimming pool and community hall.
