Co-Designed Programme – Primary

We can create a unique experiential learning programme that will be designed to meet your goals.

Get your students out the classroom for an organised, adventurous and engaging programme!  As a well-established provider of Experiential Learning EOTC programmes, we offer quality learning in a challenging, yet safe, education setting. Tamariki get to work together as a team, develop their confidence and learn new skills through a wide range of adventurous, cultural and environmental activities. We will work with you to enhance learning opportunities on a school camp or to extend students’ learning on a particular unit of work.  Whenua Iti Outdoors partners with the Ministry of Education to provide programmes to Enrich Local Curriculum that align with the New Zealand Curriculum framework.

Our experienced educators will tailor a programme to year level, specified learning objectives, school time frames and include subsidies where available to reduce the cost to schools / parents.
