St Margaret's regularly offers international tours across a range of activities and interests. These can be cultural/languages trips, music touring, philanthropic projects or of a more recreational nature such as our recent New Zealand skiing tour. Each seek to broaden our girls' horizons, and give them a greater global perspective of the world in which they live.
Every second year, the St Margaret's primary school offers a cultural trip to Japan for Years 5 and 6 students during the September school holidays. The tour commences with two nights in Tokyo, followed by a bullet train to Kobe where the students stay within the Konan University complex. The students’ trip also includes visits to Kyoto, Nara, Hiroshima and Miyajima Island, Osaka and Universal Studios. The highlight is the visit to our sister school, Konan Elementary School in Kobe, where we experience a day in the life of a Japanese child and participate in drumming, calligraphy, Kendo and classroom activities.
