EOTC: Education Outside The Classroom
From time to time the children will go on trips associated with their classroom programmes. Such trips may be to the Museum and Heritage Park across the road from the school, sporting and cultural events at other schools or within the city, or events such as the biannual Youth Leaders’ Summit.
We are very lucky to have the opportunity on our doorstep to expose our students with experiences around our locality. These activities include, to name a few: surfing; sailing; kayaking; snorkelling; hiking; trampolining; Monster scooters; biking; art trails; beach experiences.
As alternative to a camp, the Middle and Senior Syndicate organise a whole week of activities to challenge and enrich our students.
On school camp the children experience a range of outdoor activities ranging from flying foxes, to water slides to kayaking and swimming. We are very fortunate that we always get a large number of parents coming on our camps, so the levels of supervision are excellent.
While we are keen for the children to have a wide range of experiences on these camps and to provide sensible challenges, we are very conscious of Health and Safety and the teachers provide extensive documentation aimed at minimising any risks.
