As part of St Peter’s College’s commitment to provide students with meaningful and challenging opportunities, the Exploration Society is offering a new and exciting immersion program for Years 11 and 12 students in 2024.

Partnering with Red Earth, students will travel to the Northern Territory for an immersive cultural experience. Red Earth is an organisation that connects people with remote Indigenous Homelands in a safe and meaningful way. Students will learn, directly from its custodians, about the rich culture of the land, kinship, connection to country, language, traditional food preparation and the complexities of living in remote areas. They will also have an opportunity to contribute to community projects.

The program will be held in the Term 2 holidays from Saturday 29 June – Saturday 6 July 2024. Students will travel to Darwin where they will begin their tour to Litchfield National Park, Watjan Homeland, Nauiyu Community and Tumbling Waters before returning home. Click here to view a proposal of the Top End Indigenous Immersion Program. A video outlining the program can be viewed here.

Years 10 and 11 students have been invited to attend a preliminary information session at lunchtime on Tuesday 19 September.

Red Earth will conduct an information session for parents and students at the School at 7pm on Tuesday 24 October. Please click here to register your attendance.

This will be an incredible opportunity for our students to make meaningful, personal connections with Indigenous Australia.
