What better place to explore a geographical wonderland than the overwhelming breadth of contrasting landscapes of Hawaii?

History & Classics
Geography & Science

HISTORY & CLASSICS

Bring history to life with a visit the American naval base in Pearl Harbour – the attack on which launched the US into WWII. Students will gain a deeper understanding of this major event with a tour to see he USS Arizona Memorial, the USS Oklahoma Memorial, the USS Utah Memorial, and parts of Ford Island and Battleship Row.

GEOGRAPHY & SCIENCE

Much of what geography and science students study can only be learnt in textbooks and experiments.  Hawaii can provide students with the opportunity to witness geological processes as they occur with soaring mountains, the steaming craters of active volcanoes, endless coastlines and frozen in time forests.  Hawaii also offers important historic sites, envy inducing waves as well as the chance to immerse yourselves in the beautiful Polynesian culture.

CULTURE

We believe that one of the best ways of experiencing and learning while travelling is to fully immerse yourself in the authentic culture of a country.  Join in with their daily activities, learn about their food and their customs, and try speaking the language with the locals and your visit will be enriched far beyond the typical tourist experience. See what lies beneath the surface through these unique and immersive experiences, such as:

  • Visit the Hawaiian Centre for Elders, a rare opportunity to truly immersive yourself in the Hawaiian culture as Hawaii’s Kupuna share their as language, history and crafts with you.
  • Hula dance lesson: Hula is the Hawaiian art of movement, dance, and storytelling. Hula began as a form of sacred devotion and became a key part of religious and cultural expression.
  • Lei-Making Class: Using special lei needles, learn the art of stringing flowers together to make a beautiful lei.
