Education Outside the Classroom
We have a choir and ukulele group run by Dominic Blaazer.
Students in year 6 participate in the Waterwise program in terms 1 and 4. Waterwise is not part of the standard national curriculum. It is an option offered on the Devonport Peninsula for education outside the classroom and aims to encourage and develop children’s water safety awareness. Waterwise provides an introduction to sailing, kayaking and boogie board rescues.
Our small class sizes really work in our favour when it comes to Waterwise. Having fewer Year 6 children than other local schools means our children get much more time on the water.
From time to time students will take part in a learning experience outside the classroom. Often this will be a with the whole school and students work in their Whanau groups to allow parents the opportunity to be with all their children. This also gives our senior students leadership opportunities within their Whanau groups.
P’form Dance group come in for 2 terms to do dance and drama with the children.
