We encourage our students to see the world with breadth and perspective and provide opportunities for involvement in global communities.
From visiting an orphanage in Nepal to going on exchange in Germany or Japan, or from serving in Chapel to taking part in forums, students have self-discovery opportunities to realise their untapped potential and learn about others.
Education beyond the classroom is critical to the development of young people.
Co-curricular involvement fosters life-long friendships that sustain the individual and the school community as a whole. Pulteney runs an Adventure Learning program, providing Year 9 and 10 students the chance to travel overseas and help diverse communities. This program builds resilience and broadens their horizons.
The Nepal earthquake in April 2015 severely damaged the school and orphanage Pulteney has developed a close relationship with. Since then, our community has rallied to raise substantial funds to assist with rebuilding efforts.
Camps provide a challenging outdoor education for students from Years 3 to 10. Students kayak, hike, rock-climb, surf and take part in orienteering with the aim of developing skills outside their home and classroom settings.
Outdoor Education builds resilience, confidence and independence and fosters closer bonds between peers.
