Oxley Adventure Trips

Excitement is building for the trips on offer in the Junior and Senior School. At the end of 2023, expressions of interest were gathered and allowed the College to assess the viability of each trip. In positive news, all of the proposed trips have strong support. We will be sending out confirmation letters with details on the payment of deposits to secure positions and payment plans in the coming weeks. Further details can also be found at this LINK.

Please keep an eye out for a letter from the College in your email inbox with payment details and further information. If you have any questions about any of the following: Year 10 Nepal, Year 10 Thailand, Year 10 Regional Australia, Year 6 Far North Queensland or Year 8-12 Japan please email Mr Christophe Gauchat at

Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award remains one of the most important elements of Oxley’s co-curricular program. Details for parents with students in Year 9 was provided at the recent Parent Information session.

Further information about the upcoming Bronze Qualifier and Silver Practice Adventurous Journeys will be available in the coming fortnight. For any students completing the different levels of the Award they are encouraged to attend the DoE Clinic run by our student leader of Outdoor Education, Hamish S (Year 12) each Thursday at lunchtime in the Library. Remember to update your logs on the Online Record Book!

Talented Athlete Program (TAP)

Oxley is launching the Talented Athlete Program in 2024. The aim is to provide one-to-one mentoring support for students who compete in their chosen sport at a high level and helping them balance their academic and co-curricular pursuits. Students selected for the program will already be competing at a State (or equivalent) representative level. They will work closely with the TAP Coordinator, Ms Meaghan Stanton, to plan for training and competition. Support will focus on making short- and long-term goals whilst planning times for rest and recovery. Involvement in TAP will require evidence of performance at a significantly higher level and is not just for sport enthusiasts.

Please keep an eye out for further information and the opportunity to submit an application on behalf of your child/children for consideration to be a part of this exciting new program.

Many thanks
