NATIONAL - CANBERRA CULTURAL TRIP
The Canberra Cultural Trip is centred on citizenship. This week long programme in the Nation`s Capital, offers a unique opportunity for our Year 6 and Year 7 students to observe first hand Australia’s parliament system and to engage in our cultural heritage. Through our national institutions students can experience excellent programmes and exhibitions that explore Australia’s democracy, values, unity and achievements as a nation. Students visit old and new Parliament House, Australian War Memorial, Australian Institute of Sport, Australian Electoral Commission and Questacon. The Canberra Cultural Trip happens every second year.
INTERNATIONALLY - MISSIONS
At Tyndale Christian School we offer a variety of ways for Senior School students to gain an appreciation of cultural differences and begin to understand the responsibility we have to those less fortunate than ourselves. The countries that our teams travel to are Kenya and Sri Lanka.
Each group spends time visiting significant attractions of these nations. However the main intention of our mission trips is to discover the realities of life in these developing lands, while making a difference one trip at a time. The teams undertake capital works projects and contribute financially to support the orphanages that the School is committed to.
The members who have travelled on any of these trips have been greatly impacted by this experience and inspired by the difference that one trip can make to the people of these countries.
KOKODA TRAIL - RESILIENCE
Our students are invited in alternate years to embark on a week-long trekking adventure along the historical Kokoda Trail. The students walk the trail where Australian and Japanese troops battled in WWII.
We join with our sister schools; Thomas Hassle College and Nambour Christian School to complete the trek. Together as a team, we experience the highs, lows, physical and mental pressures followed by the accomplishment of the 100km mountainous trek. It is an achievement to complete this trek, and those who participate will see a growth in confidence and determination.
