The school’s EOTC activities support and enhance the New Zealand Curriculum. EOTC programmes, events, activities, and experiences enhance learning, through a variety of well-designed, first-hand experiences.
Parents may be asked to assist with trips and must abide by the parent helper guidelines below.
At the beginning of the year a permission form is signed for minor trips and activities. Anything with a risk factor or an overnight stay outside of school will require additional permission and health & safety forms.
If parents are transporting children outside of school a current W.O.F, registration and drivers licence is required. Please click on the transport form button below to enter your details if you are providing transport for a trip.
Students learn through experiences appropriate to their needs and environment. Students need a variety of experiences for maximum development, and should be given opportunities to explore and learn from the world outside the classroom.
Taking children out of the school environment can provide them with life-changing experiences which they will remember for the rest of their lives. It can also put them at risk and into unfamiliar situations. Careful planning and preparation is needed to minimise risks and make the activity a positive experience for each student.
