School Groups

Hunter Ice Skating Stadium invites high schools across the Newcastle and Hunter Region to embrace ice skating as a school sport!

Currently, over 20 schools visit us at different times during the week, from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM, Monday through Friday.

During these sessions, students can take a breather and grab some hot food and drinks from our open canteen.

The cost per student starts from $9.00 for recurring bookings, making it an accessible and exciting option for schools.

While general skating doesn’t traditionally require safety equipment, we provide helmets for students who prefer to wear them, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience.

Whether you’re a school sports coordinator seeking an awesome new activity or a student eager to add some coolness to your sports curriculum, reach out to Hunter Ice Skating Stadium today. Our friendly team is ready to assist you!

Corporates & Fundraisers

Fundraising for your school, group, or charity can be quite the challenge, taking up precious time and effort. At Hunter Ice Skating Stadium, we’re here to lend a hand, supporting your cause and making your fundraising journey smoother and swifter. Our goal? To help you get back to what you excel at—coaching sports teams or managing community groups!

Here’s how it works: Hunter Ice Skating Stadium will donate $3 from every non-birthday party entry fee during our Friday afternoon Family Skate to clubs and groups that designate this day for their fundraising event. This session is a massive hit, designed especially for kids, featuring popular music, dazzling lights, dancing competitions, and prizes.

It’s an effortless way to generate funds—all you need to do is spread the word among your family and friends. The more people who come to skate, the more money you raise!

Let’s break it down: Imagine bringing 40 people from your club, school, or charity to skate, and another 40 regular customers join in—that’s a total of 80 attendees. Your group instantly earns $240 just by having a blast! And with our rink accommodating up to 500 people, filling it means a potential fundraising of $1500!

Please note, a minimum of 20 people per session is required.
