Expeditions and Exchanges
As part of its commitment to developing students’ global perspective, the School runs a range of cultural, academic, sporting, community service and outdoor education tours every year both overseas and within Australia.
There are sporting tours in most school holidays, and in recent years groups of students have skied in Japan, undertaken community service projects in Thailand, represented Australia in academic tournaments in New Zealand, and attended prestigious international IT conferences in San Francisco.
The Languages Department organises regular international tours to enhance cultural understanding and linguistic development. The Department also facilitates longer-term placements for students wishing to further develop their language skills by studying in schools overseas.
YEAR 10 CULTURAL EXCHANGE
Canberra Grammar School offers Year 10 students the opportunity to study in South Africa, England, Scotland, Canada or the United States. Students must apply for and are interviewed for placements in this extremely popular programme, which plays an enormously important role in helping them to develop an international understanding and a powerful sense of their role as ambassadors for the School and Australia.
