Education Outside the Classroom

Edgecumbe College is well placed for Education out of the Classroom (EOTC) experiences, situated next to the Rangitaiki River, within easy driving distance to Ohope beach, Thornton beach, the Whakatane heads, Tauranga moana, mountain biking parks, Rotorua lakes, Ruapehu skifields, and much more than Aotearoa has to offer. 

Our Year 10 Outdoor Education and senior Geography classes make term excursions for EOTC as part of their curriculum.

Other classes and year levels incorporate EOTC through regional sport competitions, trade site visits, data gathering for science, technology site visits, marae noho, culture show excursions, leadership opportunities and more.
