National and International experiences

Outdoor education in the form of camp, retreat and experiential programs, is embedded as a key learning experience for  students at the College.

A sequential program for students from Years 3 to 11 provides students with intentionally designed experiences in residential and expedition environments. Students are provided with challenges that take them beyond their comfort zones.  They discover new strengths and capabilities through tailored outdoor experiences.

Service learning and other programs provide national and international experiences

The Timor Leste, Gamilaraay, Round Square and Duke of Edinburgh programs enable students to combine national and international experiences with service.

Students can also participate in tours related to aspects of the curriculum, for example:

  • LOTE tours to schools in France, China and Japan, with which we have exchange arrangements
  • the European Story of Science Tour
