About the immersion

This immersion experience is designed to encourage students to appreciate diversity and value inclusion and to help them build positive relationships with other students from different backgrounds. We hope this immersion will help to build partnerships with local and wider indigenous communities in relation to shared beliefs and understandings. Additionally, the College would like to create further opportunities for students and staff to engage with indigenous communities in the area on a long-term basis.

We’d like to create an experience for students that is eye opening, educational, enjoyable, but most importantly, an experience that provides both our students and those of the homelands we visit, with an opportunity to learn and grow, and to make a difference.

The proposed immersion will:

  • run alongside the Timor Leste Immersion (6/8/17 – 16/8/17)
  • be priced between $3000 – $3800 depending on the number of students who attend and the number of days away (either 8 or 10 days)
  • include a community project that will be specific to a homeland’s needs. Students will start and finish this community project (building, maintenance or education based) for the duration of their immersion, and;
  • allow for students to explore and appreciate Australia’s beautiful rich Indigenous history and natural environments.
