About the Methven Summer School 

WELCOME to the Annual Methven Summer School 

Our goal every year is to share a taste of Methven. We are inviting you to be “Involved, Informed and definitely Inspired” by our unique region and the expert guidance of this year's tutors. Running over six days, the Summer School will take in a weekend to meet the requests of Monday – Friday workers wishing to partake in courses. We have matched all our courses to locations and venues in and around the Methven township and area to present a ‘Taste of Methven’ and experience all the region has to offer.

The Committee, local businesses and community are looking forward to welcoming you and showing off our region.
