Civics - School Excursions

Young people are increasingly passionate about driving the conversation on issues facing our society – from climate change and mental health, to equity and discrimination.

Last year’s School Strike 4 Climate events – part of a global youth-led movement calling for urgent action on climate change – was testament to the growing ‘voice’ of young Australians, as thousands of students walked out of their classroom to join events around the country.

Nature Connection - School Excursions

We’ve all felt it. That connection and oneness with nature that fills you with a sense of wonder and awe.

Positive School Environment

It’s not something you can see, touch or feel, but positive school spirit has the power to reach every corridor, every classroom and every centimetre of the school playground.

It’s something all schools strive to achieve, and with good reason. A positive school spirit creates a welcoming vibe, keeps everyone smiling and encourages harmony in and out of the classroom.

In short, it makes everyone feel that they are part of something greater than themselves.
