EOTC/School Programmes

Sonshine Ranch Trust have had to make the difficult decision to place EOTC programmes on hold for Term 1, 2022.  We look forward to being able to welcome you back once we are in a position to offer these again, and will be in contact with you then.

Education Outside The Classroom

At Sonshine Ranch we pride ourselves on developing and offering high quality EOTC that enhances your classroom programme and provides a diverse range of outdoor education experiences.
Outdoor Education provides a unique opportunity for students to be taken out of their everyday routines and placed in an atmosphere where they can be challenged to grow.
Sonshine Ranch is a registered Adventure Activity Operator (AAO) with Worksafe NZ. The regulations aim to enhance professionalism and ensure consistent good practice across the OOA sector. (pursuant to Regulation 6(1) of the Health and Safety in Employment (Adventure Activities) Regulations 2016.)
