Education Outside the Classroom

EOTC programmes provide students with access to hands-on experiences that are not available inside the classroom. They offer unique and stimulating learning opportunities that support your child’s learning and achievement.

These programmes are aligned with the National Curriculum.

These pages suggest ways you can assist your child’s school to maximise learning and safety during EOTC experiences.

Specific Education Outside the Classroom (EOTC) programmes are provided from years 1-6.

Variety of Experiences

Many enriching opportunities are available to children through trips and visitors to our school. Advice of an intended trip away will be given in advance. One trip per term is the norm. All children are encouraged to participate. Cost is kept to a minimum, and is usually covered by the activity fee.

Depending on the learning focus a range of experts are invited to school each year. The school has hosted many touring musical and performing artists and KMS aims to have at least one outside concert each year.
