EDUCATION OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM (EOTC)

This involves students being involved in programmes outside the school grounds. It may involve day trips around Tokoroa or programmes outside Tokoroa. On occasions it may involve overnight stays. All students will be involved in this programme.

  • Year 7 students will have a class and syndicate bonding programme early in Term 1. This will often include a science study.
  • There will be other EOTC excursions during the year, which will have a curriculum (subject) focus.

The total cost for EOTC programmes for 2016 will not exceed $150.00 per student. Parents / guardians will be advised of the Term 1 / 2016 programme prior to the end of the 2015 school year and the full year’s programme will be supplied early in Term 1 / 2016.

Parents may set up an automatic payment of a few dollars per week to cover these expenses. Many families take advantage of this option.

For safety reasons parent help is also required to enable EOTC trips to proceed. It is also important that parents / guardians fill in permission slips and make the payments in the time frame provided.
