''Pittwater YHA provided an opportunity for our school group to connect. We swam, kayaked, walked, sang, played games, cooked, talked and laughed well away from the distractions of everyday. Our hosts, Sarah and Michael, provided hospitality and practical advice at any required opportunity. Pittwater is a truly calm and beautiful backdrop to explore, create school memories and develop our students". Alex, high school teacher, Elonera Montessori School, 2013
