Our students have countless opportunities to explore their country, discover and challenge their own strengths and capabilities, and embark on adventures that will create lifelong friends and memories.
Our program of experiential learning begins with our youngest students in the ELC who explore Mentone Beach or enjoy the excitement of wildlife visitors to the classrooms.
In Eblana, students are immersed in literacy and numeracy, together with science and environmental studies, humanities, technologies, language, culture and more – all of which are supported by a range of incursions and excursions.
The School’s Learning Journeys program takes an age and stage approach, building on previous camps and experiences to encourage and support students to continue to build resilience and confidence, and advance their social and emotional growth. The program begins in Year 3, when students explore the local area with overnight stays at our beachside Shoreham Camp on the Mornington Peninsula.
Through primary and middle years, our classes gradually explore further afield to discover more about Australia’s rich heritage from the history of the Goldfields in Ballarat to our unique Indigenous culture in Central Australia or explore citizenship in our nation’s capital, Canberra.
Year 9 is packed full of uniquely Australian adventures designed to challenge and provide an appreciation of our vast country. Destinations include Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia, The Great Barrier Reef, Far North Queensland, and Kakadu (subject to change).
At the Senior end of the School, students in Years 10 – 12 may also choose their experiences to suit their special interests. Opportunities can include immersive expeditions connected to studies in languages, STEM, the humanities, as well as assisting in Indigenous communities.
We hope to offer a range of international Learning Journeys with cultural, STEM and language tours to Asia, Europe, the USA and beyond, in line with government guidelines and safety requirements.
