"We have been coming to Seville Mercy Centre for a number of years and will look to continue this relationship into the future because we enjoy our time at Seville so much. We bring a number of school groups from Sydney and the staff at Seville are always so friendly and accommodating. The accommodation is set up well for our needs, as are the communal spaces like the dining and conference area. The grounds are beautiful and open, so there is plenty of space to relax and play. In particular, Rod and Sam make booking and staying at Seville a pleasure."
We invite high school groups from all over Australia to come and experience some of the spectacular natural beauty of Far North Queensland.
Students get to enjoy different tours of the region, exploring the Great Barrier Reef and its islands, the World Heritage listed rainforest and indigenous tours to encourage them to follow Pope Francis’ Laudato si’ – his call to motivate people to care for our planet. We send the students on tours and when they return, they share their experiences and we discuss how important it is to protect our natural environment so they can take that knowledge and share it with others.
Students gain a deeper understanding on how important this 130-million-year-old rainforest is and how its medicinal and scientific discoveries help the entire world and why it’s must be protected.
Students learn about this precious World-Heritage listed icon while exploring the inhabitants, giving them a greater understanding of the importance of protecting this national treasure.
Culturally inclusive practice is important at the whole school level and the curriculum, or classroom, level. Students and school groups gain a deep understanding of Australia’s traditional owners, and their local culture and dreaming.
