Broadening her horizons

In our interconnected and everchanging world, it is essential that our young women develop global and cultural awareness. Seymour provides a range of deliberate and purposeful exchanges, tours and trips which enable our girls to meaningfully connect with life beyond the College. Through participation in these activities, girls develop international competence, an appreciation of cultural diversity and a connection that transcends national and geographical boundaries.

We offer a broad range of reciprocal exchanges, service expeditions, tours and trips.

Duke of Edinburgh Award

Seymour students have the opportunity to engage with a world recognised youth development program that empowers young Australians to explore their full potential and find their purpose, passion and place in the world.

Open to girls aged 14 and older, the Duke of Edinburgh Award is broken into three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. To achieve an award, girls must learn a skill, improve their physical wellbeing, volunteer in the community and experience a team adventure in a new environment.

At Seymour, our girls are encouraged to embrace the Duke of Edinburgh Award as we know that participants learn the power of being connected and engaged with the wider community, understand the difference they can make in society through positive contributions and learn to persevere and overcome barriers to achieve success.
