Pakuranga College is committed to Education Outside the Classroom (EOTC). EOTC provides opportunties for students to experience learning that extends outside the four walls of the classroom.
The role of EOTC at Pakuranga College is to enhance the curriculum in interesting and challenging ways. It will encourage students' understandings of the relationships between people and their physical environment.
It will provide opportunities for students to take an active part in enjoyable physical activity, identify dangerous situations, to manage risks, and take positive action where necessary. It will also promote an appreciation of our heritage - locally, nationally and internationally.
Pakuranga College, while committed to EOTC, recognises that the safety of our students, teachers and volunteers during EOTC is paramount. We therefore have policies and procedures in place not only to encourage EOTC activities, but also enhance safety of all concerned and meet the obligations promulgated by the relevant statutes and best practice recommendations.
