At Nelson English Centre you don't stop learning when classes end at 3:15pm. After school our students enjoy a wide range of activities including beach volleyball, BBQ parties, yoga, frisbee and fishing. In the weekends our students use NEC equipment to explore the wonderful nature of the Nelson Region.


All The Activities You Could Want

Nelson English Centre staff are involved in most weekly activities. Students make a uniquely strong connection with teachers, the local community, lifestyle and landscape as well as have a great time. We see activities as simply sharing the Nelson lifestyle that our staff, homestay families and friends enjoy.
