EOTC – Education Outside the Classroom
The TNIS Education Outside the Classroom (EOTC) programme runs on a two-year cycle. In odd years, all learners attend a camp with their team of classes. The camp runs for three days and two nights and is held out of Auckland. All learners are encouraged to attend.
In even years, the programme consists of a series of whole-day activities in and around Auckland.
The purpose of the EOTC programme is two-fold. It provides an opportunity for learners to try a number of challenging activities, learn essential practical and social skills, and grow in their ability to show cooperation, empathy and teamwork. Both peer relationships and relationships with teaching staff are strengthened.
