Education outside the classroom

Education Outside the Classroom (EOTC) is defined as all those events that occur outside the classroom, both on and off-site. This includes all curriculum, sporting, and cultural activities. 

Taking students out of the classroom environment can provide them with life-changing experiences.  Careful planning and preparation is taken to minimise any risks to make EOTC activities a positive experience for every student. 

Resilience is one of our three key Mānuka School values. EOTC provides students with opportunities to challenge themselves in a safe and structured environment.

EOTC activities support and enhance the New Zealand Curriculum

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.
