China Tour

Years 9 – 11 students (Applications open)

China promises a variety of experiences from the highly developed cities of Shanghai and Beijing to the farm lands of northern and western China. Despite being a languages tour, this trip would be worthwhile for any student interested in China and its culture. Students visit the city of Xian and the famous Terracotta Warriors, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, and the centre of the Ming and Qing dynasties. They will also get to climb and walk on the Great Wall of China and visit one of the key venues of the 2008 Olympic Games.

Antarctic Expedition

Years 9–12 students (Expressions of interest invited)
Information evening on Wednesday 29 May 2019 at 6pm

Come on SACS’ most ambitious and adventurous tour ever! We will be walking in Tierra Del Fuego National Park in the southern-most tip of Chile before embarking on a small ship to Antarctica. Not only do we have some amazing on-foot expeditions, but we enjoy riding the zodiacs to get up close and personal with rare ocean animals. Another highlight will be the scientific educational program designed to enhance the experience. Due the huge expense of this trip (around $18,000), we are looking for expressions of interest at this time.
