EPIC Learning Environments

E.P.IC. Environments

At OPS we developed a researched based framework to support our ākonga (learners). We call it an EPIC Environment. 

It's more than just the physical environment - although that is part of it. It also includes the 'emotional environment' and and environment which is 'intellectually challenging'.

Recent consultation with our OPS whānau (Term 3 2023) has helped us update these concepts.

The images below give a simple summary of what each part of EPIC involves. 

Each year we will continue to refine and add to our understanding of what it means to have EPIC Learning Environments.
