The 2017 German Trip is around the corner… the countdown is on!

The German Trip will be taking place in the June holidays from 17 June 2017 to 8 July 2017.

Eleven Students in years 9 to 12 will soon embark on this exciting journey. They will have the opportunity to be immersed in the German language and culture and experience the life of a German teenager.

At their first lunch time meeting together as a group, students were given a ‘pre-departure gift bag’ containing a German phrase book, a note book (for school), an ‘Aussie’ luggage tag and of course, some German sweets.

Students will spend 9 nights in a home-stay attending our sister school Comenius Gymnasium in Düsseldorf, undertaking a diverse range of activities provided by the school. Then, students will spend an additional week traveling by private coach throughout Germany and Austria visiting famous landmarks, such as the Berlin Wall and the Neuschwanstein Castle, in southern Bavaria.

I would like to wish all the German trip students a “gute Reise!” 4 weeks to go!
