Our educational facility, the Whakapumautanga Downs Learning Centre, has been established at the Tongariro National Trout Centre.
The centre is named after the late Whakapumautanga "Darkie" Downs in memory of his sterling work with conservation and his people, Ngāti Tūwharetoa.
The Whakapumautanga Downs Learning Centre is nestled amongst the native bush and has a children's fishing pond just beyond it's front doorstep - a setting that easily creates lasting memories for the students.
