See articles below for EOTC information

Outdoor Education provides students opportunities to develop personal and social skills, to become active, safe and skilled in the outdoors and to develop passion for outdoor education and the environment.  

Our EOTC (Out of the Classroom) programme includes a variety of learning opportunities and is designed to cater for the consolidation and extension of our children’s skill and needs. It is our aim for all children to be included in our Outdoor Education Programme. All students from Year 1 - Year 6 have the opportunity to be involved in overnight camps every year:

Year 1 and 2 students take part in an overnight camp each year. These camps involve activities across a day and an overnight stay somewhere (usually) reasonably close to school. Parents often choose to take part in this camp, too, to be close to their children. The first newsletter for the 2019 camp was sent out to parents on 18 October 2019 - Camp Information. The second and final newsletter was sent out to all parents on 25 November 2019 - Y0-2 Camp Information

Year 3 and 4 students take part in a two day, one night camp each year. These camps operate in alternating pattern, with a city-based camp one year, and a more rural camp the second year. Some parents come along as help on the camp, either through the day or for the overnight stay. Details will be provided in due course. The first newsletter for the 2019 camp was sent out to parents on 4 September 2019 - Year 3 & 4 Camp Information #1. The second was sent out to all parents on 25 October 2019 - Camp Information #2. The third newsletter was sent to parents on 22 November 2019 - Year 3 & 4 Camp Information #3.

Year 5 and 6 students take part in a week-long camp every year. Again, these camps operate in an alternating pattern, with odd-year camps taking place somewhere on the South Island and even-year camps taking place somewhere on the North Island. Depending on numbers, two or three teachers take part in this camp, along with several volunteer parents. You can find initial information about the 2019 Year 5 & 6 Camp to Teapot Valley. The first newsletter was sent out to all parents on 7 June 2019 - Camp Information #1. The second and final newsletter was sent out to all parents on 8 November 2019 - Camp Information #2.
