National and International Experiences

Outdoor education

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 tours

The College's Timor Leste, Gamilaraay, Round Square and Duke of Edinburgh programs enable students to combine national and international experiences with service. While many of these programs have been disrupted in recent years, we aim to restart them as soon as it is safe and possible to do so.

Curriculum-related tours

Students have also participated in tours related to aspects of the curriculum, for example:

  • Languages Department tours to schools in France, China and Japan, with which we have exchange arrangements
  • the European Story of Science Tour
  • the Earth and Environmental Sciences tour of New Zealand
  • the Central Australia Cultural Awareness tour.

Co-curricular tours

Co-curricular musicians have participated in activities such as Eisteddfods and the Combined Schools Music Festival.

Students involved in sports travel individually and as teams to national and international events.
