- Student Life
Woodcroft College is pleased to provide a range of Faculty trips and cultural tours to students in Middle and Senior School.
Students are provided with opportunities to develop cultural awareness, strengthen knowledge, and build leadership and sportsmanship skills. Students will gain confidence, learn about teamwork and strengthen real connection with peers and staff. And of course, make lifelong memories.
Year 11 and Year 12 Drama students are offered an annual trip to Sydney. This trip provides students with the opportunity to experience theatre productions that are not available in South Australia along with a tour of the Opera House. Students will also participate in workshops at Australia’s leading theatre institutes, NIDA and Bell Shakespeare.
The Language Faculty offers annual Cultural Tours to Japan and Germany for students in Year 10 and Year 11. Cultural Tours are designed to provide students with an exciting blend of cultural and language immersion, as well as sightseeing.
While the Cultural Tours are non-curriculum, priority will be given to students studying the language.
The Music Tour offers students in the Middle and Senior school the opportunity to perform in the USA as part of a band (vocals and instruments). In previous tours students have performed on stages in New York’s Lincoln Centre, San Francisco’s Union Square, the LA Farmer’s Market, LA’s Madame Tussauds on Hollywood Boulevard, Disneyland and Universal Studios.
This is a non-curriculum trip and any student who participates in the extra-curricular music program is able to join the biennial Music Tour to the USA.
The Outdoor Education Faculty runs the Year 10 Future Leaders program. This involves selected students participating in five mandatory experiences and trips ranging from one day to six days.
Future Leaders are encouraged to participate in the final trip of the school year to New Zealand or Tasmania. Year 11 Outdoor Education students may also be invited to join this trip.
This annual trip provides students with leadership development opportunities and the chance to connect with their peers and experiences in nature. Students will participate in multi-day hikes along with shorter activities such as rock climbing and white water paddling.
