Indigenous Cultural Awareness
Each year, Senior PDHPE students and interested Year 9 students are able to travel to central Australia as part of a cultural immersion program. The tour offers a unique opportunity to gain greater awareness, education and appreciation for Australia’s Indigenous culture and people.
Focus is given to Indigenous health and health determinants that are studied in Year 11 and 12 PDHPE. Students also devote time to a culturally sensitive community service project.
Run by Remote Tours, the seven day tour covers the Kings Canyon area in the Northern Territory with visits to Uluru and Kata Tjuta National Park.
During the tour, students will experience a three day immersion and community service project in an Aboriginal community. Activities are determined on current needs of the community but may include projects such as:
- Helping in community market gardens
- Organising and managing sport activities with local children
Students are confronted with the challenges of living and working in a remote area and will have experiences that will enhance their personal and academic development.
