We believe global citizenship should be authentic and inspiring. It should be experienced.
Our Community and Culture programs immerse students in far-away places they wouldn’t visit on the average family holiday. Under supervision from expert staff they get the opportunity to learn that wherever you are in the world there is more that we share than separates us, we celebrate the rich diversity and differences of other cultures. That is where we believe the magic is. It’s where we build respect, broaden our horizons and inspire a lifetime of action.
Through a structured cultural program, built in partnership with you, students will learn through experience as they are immersed in local culture buying ingredients in the local market, seeing animals being rehabilitated into the wild, visiting local temples or snorkelling amongst pristine reefs. Students will also contribute to a meaningful community project, where living and working alongside locals and their peers will offer precious insight into both a different way of living and how solutions are being found to local challenges.
