Students currently in Years 8 or 10 (2015) are invited to participate in the PDHPE Indigenous Cultural Awareness and Community Service Tour to Central Australia in June 2016. The tour is designed to provide all students with a unique opportunity to gain, in a respectful manner, a greater awareness, education, and appreciation for Australia’s Indigenous culture and people. They will also witness and experience some of Australia's most spectacular natural wonders.  

The tour is a cultural immersion program run by Remote Tours (http://www.remote-tours.com/). It consists of an eight-day program based predominantly in the Kings Canyon area with visits to Uluru, Kata Tjuta National Park and MacDonnell Ranges.  

The tour also involves a three-day immersion and community service component in a local Aboriginal community Lilla  an outstation in Kings Canyon (a small Aboriginal community of 10-20 people). The community service component will depend on the current needs of the community, and may include projects such as helping in the community market gardens or organising and running a sports morning for local children.
