Year 10 Trip
One major element of Year 10 is the 3 week Year 10 Trip. On this trip the student’s journey 10,000km around Australia taking in Adelaide, Canberra and Sydney as well as visiting other significant landmarks and gaining important knowledge about the country in which they live.
This is a multifaceted trip that takes in and makes direct links to multiple subject areas including History, Civics, Geography, Science, PE, English and others. Work is done during the trip and in reflection after students return.
The trip is also where significant social learning occurs as students cohabitate with one another for 3 weeks and learn to live, work and play within the context of a large team. This leads to great friendships being developed and emotional strength and resilience increasing.
Overall, the trip is a great time of learning and bonding and is generally a major highlight for students of the school year as students develop into a cohesive group who are able to provide support for each other as they progress though their senior years.
Mission Trips | Study Tours
Each year NT Christian College, in partnership with other organisations, run short mission trips to other countries. Currently there are trips to India and also to Indonesia. These trips are opportunities for students to engage with other cultures outside their own and to give their time and resources in service to others. These trips generally include partnering with schools or orphanages in the area and providing physical assistance in the form of teaching, cleaning or building. Students often find these trips highly challenging and rewarding.
From time to time other opportunities for leadership and service are available for students. In recent years this has included attending an international student congress in Japan and participating in an international millennium science forum in Helsinki, Finland.
