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.

2020 Wider Education

Wednesday 2nd – Friday 4th December

Wider Education is a tradition at Mount Roskill Grammar School.  Year 9 & 10 students attend camps, 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. Activities $50 and under are to be paid in full.

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 being secured for your child.

A permission slip is to accompany deposits or full payments made at the accounts office.

Deposits need to be paid by Friday 16th October or sooner.

The remaining balance will need to be paid Friday 20th November.

Payment can also 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.

Automatic payments are also possible with the same information in the reference, so long as the balance is paid by 20th November.

Please note:

  • Please assist your child to choose carefully as refunds are not guaranteed due to set trip costs of providers which need to be paid in advance.  
  • 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.  
  • Activities can be subject to change.
  • If you need more information please do not hesitate contact me.
