Opportunities for extension and pursuing passions are part of the thread that weaves its way through the Santa Maria story. Trips such as Duke of Edinburgh and the Great Vic Bike Ride encourage students to test their own limits and show learner profile attributes that include being principled, balanced, caring and risk-taking…all the while having great fun. The College participation in the Great Vic Bike ride is open to all students as another way to engage with community, understand the value of sustainability and work with their peers towards achieving a common goal.
