National and Global Engagement

Trips, Tours and Exchanges

In our ever-shrinking world, it is essential that young people develop global and cultural awareness, as well as an appreciation of the many and varied opportunities within Australia. Recognising the importance of a relevant and connected experience, Direction 4 of the College Strategic Plan identifies the goal of ‘Engagement with the world beyond our campus.’

Aligning with the College GIRLbeing Learning and Service frameworks Seymour provides a range of deliberate and purposeful trips and tours which enable 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.

Girls are encouraged to participate in the various recreational trips, cultural tours, immersions and exchanges that are offered.
