Field Trips

Education outside the classroom

Every year, staff at Chapel Downs look for ways to enhance students’ learning through the Education Outside the Classroom Programme. The EOTC programme varies to fit the needs of the students, the topics being studied in class and the resources available in our community. EOTC provides relevant, meaningful learning in an authentic context and trips are organised for individuals, small groups and full classes. 

A highlight is the Year 6 camp held at Camp Adair in the Hunua Ranges. Students try archery, kayaking, abseiling, a high ropes course and learn about team building.
