Wider Education

Wider Education is an opportunity for our Year 9 & 10 students to participate in activities or day trips over three days at the end of the year. The Wider Education programme covers a wide range of learning intentions that support the developing of our students’ social interaction, key competencies and team skills.

Students can choose a Wider Education activity that provides an opportunity to try something that they normally would not do. It could be an activity that would challenge their threshold or alternatively an activity that is low impact and relaxing. There are a range of options that will cater all our students with our Wider Education programme. It is a popular event that students look forward to at the end of the year.


Wider Education is a tradition at Mount Roskill Grammar School.  Year 9 & 10 students attend activities or day trips as part of the school’s Wider Education Programme.  The activities cover a wide range of learning intentions and develop students’ social interaction, key competencies and team skills.

In order to secure a place in an activity, a $50 deposit for activities over $100 is required.

If there is an activity that your child would like to attend and is not able to make the initial deposit, please contact me directly via email to request a place be secured for your child.

Payment can be made through internet banking to the following account: 12 3033 0358045 02

Please include your child’s ID number and the name of the activity chosen as the reference.

Alternatively payments can be made in person at the accounts office.

The remaining balance will need to be paid (2021 dates tbc)

Automatic payments are also possible with the same information in the reference, so long as the balance is paid by (2021 dates tbc)

Please note:

  • If Wider Education is cancelled due to a change in Alert Levels – a full refund of payments provided to the school will be carried out.
  • We endeavour to give students their first choice option, but places fill fast.
  • More information about activities and full permission and health slips will be issued closer to the time.
