We are very excited to launch The Endeavour Program – our new “Education Outside of the Classroom” (EOTC) experience developed for our Year 10 and Year 11 students in 2025.  

The Endeavour Program replaces our traditional camp offering and is an intentionally planned experiential learning opportunity that develops students to be inquiring and caring young people through real-world lived experiences. Our HVGS EOTC program embodies our school motto ‘Success Through Endeavour’.

The four pillars of the Endeavour Program are: 

  • Challenge
  • Service
  • Leadership 
  • Connection 

Year 10 and Year 11 students in 2025 (our current Year 9 and year 10 students in 2024) will have the opportunity to select from a range of expeditions occurring either locally, interstate or internationally.

  • Glenworth Valley Cultural and Camping Expedition, Glenworth Valley NSW 
  • Hawkesbury River Kayaking Expedition (Duke of Edinburgh, Silver), NSW  
  • Jindabyne and Snowy Mountains Tour, Jindabyne NSW
  • Great Barrier Reef Marine Conservation Tour, Cairns QLD
