Education Outside the Classroom


Learning does not belong to schools. It belongs to children. It happens by doing things; many of them outside of the classroom.
Education outside the classroom also features strongly in all our learning programmes and is enhanced by school camps for Year 3-6 pupils held in March each year. In addition to camps our Year 7 & 8 pupils build on these experiences, participating in variety of Geographical and Urban outdoor activities.
An integral part of our unique aquatic environment is our ‘Waterwise’ programme in Term 1 and 4 annually. This is strongly supported by a local aquatic tourism business ‘Dive Tutukaka.’ This sees Years 5-6 complete a snorkeling qualification and all our Year 7 & 8’s complete
an introduction to scuba diving course at the Poor Knights Island.
