EOTC (Education Outside The Classroom)
About EOTC

Education outside the classroom (EOTC), in the form of camps, is an essential part of school life here at Southland Girls’ High School.

We as a school value the learning experiences the students can gain beyond the classroom and see it vitally important to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the wonderful environment in Southland.

Students need to learn in a variety of contexts in order to gain the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values required to enjoy a healthy lifestyle, take responsibility for their own safety, and form positive relationships with their peers, their teachers and the environment. At Southland Girls’ we offer camps for Year Levels 7 to 10.

I understand that playing sport is an opportunity for me to learn, practice skills, and gain attitudes and values in an environment outside of the school.  I realise that this requires me to take on genuine responsibility for my own enjoyment and safety and that of others.

I agree to do the following to make this happen:

  • Show courtesy and consideration to others.
  • Follow the rules and instructions of staff and other supervisors at the events.
  • Look after myself and my personal belongings.
  • Declare medical conditions that could affect participation in the events.
  • Accept the rules set by the school for the events.

I understand that my parents / caregivers will be contacted and I may be sent home at their expense if:

  • My actions are considered unacceptable by staff / supervisors of these events.
  • I breach the behaviour / discipline standards of the school.
  • My actions put me or others in any danger.
