The Retreat, Kangaroo Valley: The journey begins

The IGS leadership team recently visited Kangaroo Valley as planning continues for the establishment of the School’s new rural retreat for our students.

Our vision is that every IGS student every year will spend time at the School’s bush campus and enjoy the greenery, tall trees, fresh air, mob of kangaroos and other wildlife, wide open spaces and natural bushland.

We will commence this process in 2023 with day trips being planned for all year groups, beginning with Year 12 in Week 8 of this term, where they’ll have a tour of The Retreat, study poetry in the Yurt and The Henry Lawson Room and then enjoy lunch and a stroll through the peaceful historic Village before returning to Ultimo. 

While on site, the leadership team also progressed plans for a staff professional development day at The Retreat before the start of Term 2.
