EDUCATION OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM
At Gulf Harbour School we have a school wide commitment to Outdoor Education. This belief is driven by a real desire to see our children challenged in a supportive and managed environment, that provokes values such as self belief, risk taking, compassion, consideration and teamwork.
We also seek to bring our learning programmes into an authentic context, and venturing beyond the classroom and school environment is part of this strategy.
Our school values of Respect, Resilience, Responsibility and Kindness are key drivers in the events and activities we pursue.
We are amongst the most fortunate of New Zealanders with a Regional Park at our doorstep, and a staff and school willing to promote outdoor education opportunities. In an age where these events are minimised and often reduced to sterile contexts, Gulf Harbour School is extremely proud of these programmes.
