Glenrowan and EST

Education Sponsorship Trust was set up to promote educational activities for young people in New Zealand. It has a number of projects in the North Island of New Zealand, including Glenrowan Study Centre, which is a small university residence that also caters for high school students and young professionals.

EST and Glenrowan are not-for-profit operations and EST is registered with the NZ Charities Commission.

Glenrowan has been involved with the organisation of Service Projects for many years and we have taken young people to Tonga, Fiji, Vietnam and outback Australia in recent projects. More information on the projects and other activities can be found at our website:

The spiritual activities of the centre and its projects are entrusted to Opus Dei, a prelature of the Catholic Church. More information about Opus Dei can be found at
