NAU MAI, WELCOME TO OUR LEARNING SPACE

This page provides detail about the Learning Experiences Outside The Classroom Service (LEOTC) programme that has run from Te Awamutu for the last 16 years. Thousands of NZ school children have come through our doors during that time and its they who continue to challenge us to find innovative ways to keep our history relevant to their world.

Check out the amazing mural by artist Jeremy Shirley.

We believe that our stories and those that stem from our past are worth retelling and rediscovering.

When we do this we begin to understand our journey as a nation and what that means for us as modern day New Zealanders writing new chapters in our history books by the way we live, work and play.

From Kupe and Captain Cook, to King Tawhiao and the heroes of Gallipoli and Chunuk Bair, these stories and journeys are uniquely worthy of passing to a new generation of Kiwi Kids!

From our mountains and wetlands, to our rivers and coasts – Its our landscape that also shapes us.
