About the tour
This tour was created to challenge, prepare and celebrate, as a school, the graduation from primary to secondary education. Set in Sydney, the tour explores a range of outdoor activities, museum visits, workshops and projects. Students will discover Australia's unique geography through its marine biology, wildlife, ecology and even its astronomy, and learn about Aboriginal culture, its history, customs and connection to the land.Post tour feedback from teachers highlights an increase in self-confidence and determination in the classroom. Students who attended the tour are quick to share ideas, lead group discussions and support classmates. Academics aside, these qualities prepare students for the challenges of maturing through secondary education, building a positive self-image, establishing friendships and setting goals to successfully navigate the pressures of a modern education system and reach their full potential.
"I was surprised to see videos of my child abseiling down a cliff face, navigate a trail in search of treasure, to hear stories of how she caught her first wave and read about how she led a group in building a raft." - Tiffany Tse's Mom
