School Trips – Old

Elizabeth College has a 20 year international exchange program with Hiroshima Inokuchi Senior High School (Japan). The Japanese exchange provide families in Tasmania and Hiroshima with a wonderful opportunity to share their own culture with others. We also have sister school relationships with China and a sponsorship sister school relationship in Vanuatu.

Elizabeth College also offers sporting and cultural opportunities throughout the year, such as visits to the mainland, a Performing Arts trip, the Mt Gambier Generations in Jazz music tour, a ski trip to Mt Hotham and snorkelling/diving on the Great Barrier Reef. In addition, a number of sporting teams represent the College in national competitions.

All College students are eligible to apply for tours. Students must maintain regular attendance in all of their classes and be up to date with school work to be eligible to participate in any school trip.  Students will be required to adhere to the Code of Conduct applicable to the tour.

 

2021 snorkelling/diving trip to the Great Barrier Reef

   

The 4-night/5-day Great Barrier Reef trip occurs at the start of the Term 3 holidays, departing Hobart on Saturday 25th September. The trip has exciting links to senior biology and environmental science courses, it’s a wonderful way to see this natural wonder of the world, and a great opportunity to escape the chilly south for a few days. For those students doing pre-tertiary subjects it’s also a chance to have a well-earned and very important break before the sprint to the final examinations begins.  The trip is perfect for students who would like to snorkel on the GBR and for those who can already scuba dive, or who plan to learn to dive beforehand. The trip will cost $2200 per student (“all-inclusive”), which can be paid in instalments, and up to 16 students can participate. An Expression of Interest form and payment details will be made available in early 2021.
