Our Heyington to Highlands program creates opportunity for involvement, team-work and personal reflection, and with this, evolves a greater self-awareness, improved critical thinking skills and an enhanced understanding of one’s own personal capacity.
Explore, Engage, Educate
To further enhance our existing specialist Year 9 programs our Heyington to Highlands experience provides our Year 9 students with the opportunity to immerse themselves in a different culture and understand what it means to become a global citizen.
Each year St Catherine’s Year 9 students will deepen their own understanding of the world beyond School. Travelling to Fiji for 12 days, students share ideas and games with young Fijian students, assist in a Fijian educational setting – developing activities relevant to the curriculum of the village Primary School – immerse themselves in village life and explore a remote environment while learning about Fijian traditions and histories.
This initiative allows our Year 9 students to develop their character and empower their independence to become globally responsive young women.
