As a school, Blackwood values its relationships with visiting students and staff and is committed to working with visiting schools to deliver quality educational programs that enhance student outcomes both at Blackwood and beyond.

We understand the considerable time and effort that schools put into organising and implementing a visit to Blackwood and we work closely with schools to ensure that the program designed through consultation with Blackwood Staff best supports the learning outcomes linked to your curriculum sequence.
