Queenstown Primary School is renowned for its Outdoor Education programme and we’re proud of the opportunities and experiences made available to our students/ ākonga.
Outdoor Education is an aspect of Education Outside the Classroom (EOTC) and aims to extend the four walls of the classroom.
Programmes in Outdoor Education are essential for connecting students with nature and their local environment.
Through learning in outdoor education, students can explore concepts such as manaakitanga (care and responsibility), kaitiakitanga (guardianship), whakawhanaungatanga (social connections), ārahitanga (leadership), and kotahitanga (unity and cooperation). We value students giving back to the community who generously support the school.
