Pymble students have a wealth of opportunities to explore Australia and the world with the Domestic and International Tours program. In 2023, our students travelled to compete in the World Robotics Competitions in the USA, furthered their learning at Oxford in the UK as part of their Summer Course program, travelled to France on a rugby tour, gave back to the community whilst exploring Tanzania, immersed themselves in First Nations culture in Arnhem Land and challenged themselves trekking the Larapinta Trail in the Northern Territory.

For 2024, Pymble students will again be travelling far and wide on a diverse range of experiences that will inspire them and provide a pathway for personal development and cultural connection. 2024 Tours include the USA Dance Tour, World Robotics competitions, Vanuatu Geography Tour, Oxford UK Academic Tour, USA Science Tour, Fiji Service Tour, Europe Music Tour and Italian Language Tour.

Types of tours

Language tours are designed to immerse students in the destination country and allow them to experience speaking the language and learn the culture of the country they are visiting.

Sport tours are tailored to students who are passionate about sport. These tours may include playing sport whilst on tour, competing, watching games and training with local clubs, as well as some sightseeing!

Performing Arts tours aim to showcase the culture of countries visited whilst offering students the opportunity to play music/attend shows and concerts and experience performing arts around the world.

Service tours provide an opportunity for students to get off the usual tourist path and into the local community where they will participate in community service and be immersed in the local culture, in addition to exploring the country and enjoying adventurous activities with friends. These tours are all about contribution, connection and fun.

Cultural tours offer students the opportunity to be immersed in a country/region and learn about its history and local customs, whilst enjoying the sights, food and connection with the local people.

Academic tours give students the chance to deepen their understanding of an area they are passionate about and extend their knowledge in a global setting. Students come away with a greater appreciation of concepts and are inspired for future opportunities.

Timeline of Tours

Please note most tours are offered bi-annually to multiple year levels, so students will have an opportunity to attend a certain tour one year or the next.
