Caulfield Grammar School emphasises an experiential approach to learning. Our Experiential Learning programs take students out of the classroom, giving them the opportunity to extend themselves, develop practical and leadership skills, and learn how to navigate unfamiliar environments and situations.


Year 9 Internationalism Program


The School’s Internationalism Program, based at its Nanjing Campus in China, sees Year 9 learners live and study in another country for five weeks.

Our Internationalism program is currently unavailable due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Year 9 Expedition Program based in the Northern Territory continues our commitment to cultural immersion learning experiences for students.

Year 9 Expedition Program


Caulfield Grammar School’s Year 9 Expedition program to Northern Territory provides students with a variety of environments and cultures to take responsibility for their own learning and self-management.

Students have a unique opportunity to experience contrasts – between ancient and modern approaches to land usage, ownership, governance and restoration – and explore the stories, culture, histories and peoples within a range of communities in the Northern Territory. 

Education Outdoors


Experiential learning at our Yarra Junction Campus encourages real-life decision-making, fosters positive risk-taking, aids the development of resilience and enhances community awareness.

A diverse range of hands-on learning experiences are offered at Yarra Junction – from exploring the natural environment through Art to scientific testing of water quality, harvesting and preparing food from the vegetable garden and supporting the operations of the working dairy farm. Built into each encounter is the opportunity to reflect and ensure the learning is personalised and transferable for each student.

The programs on offer at Yarra Junction Campus are unique and are likely to have a profound effect on each student visiting – whether in the Junior or Secondary years.
