Chiang Mai

The Chiang Mai Experience was introduced in 2003 as an optional program involving Year 9 students spending several weeks in Northern Thailand.

This unique experience is designed as an inclusive ‘self-discovery journey’ endeavouring to lead students to a deep self-understanding, self-awareness and true independence. It also serves to provide students with a deep and lasting sense of international mindedness, where an understanding, acceptance and respect for different cultures, religions and ways of life become a hallmark of their character.

Kardinia Sum Pun

Kardinia Sum Pun is a resort style campus, located approximately 16 km north east of Chiang Mai City, in Thailand. Our six acre campus provides a wonderful home-base for students. The facilities include a swimming pool, separate Jacuzzi, sauna, large recreation facility, floodlit tennis/basketball court, lake, open air dining facility, cafe, play space and a gym/activity room. Accommodation for all students is in air-conditioned ensuite rooms with regular cleaning services and laundry provided. Meals are served in the open dining hall by the large ponds.
