Beyond the Classroom

Learning through experience

Learning through a rich diversity of experiences is integral to our teaching and learning philosophy. We believe that learning should not be confined within the walls of the classroom - our students' learning is enhanced by varied and challenging experiences beyond the classroom.

The school also offers a number of trips and programs that focus on developing a wide range of personal, physical and intellectual skills in a range of environments - both local and overseas.

These experiences allow students to develop resilience, independence and teamwork and can lead to a deeper understanding of concepts taught in the classroom.

Our students have the opportunity to travel interstate to Canberra or overseas to Vietnam.
