Sturt Winter School

The first Sturt Winter School was held in July 2006, offering approximately 15 courses and has become a regular part of the Sturt calendar. Enjoy a real Highlands winter with the open fires of the Sturt and Frensham campus and be challenged by craft and art classes in a unique learning environment. Proposed courses and tutors are available in January each year.

Sturt is an endorsed provider of professional development by the NSW Institute of Teachers, so the Winter School is also a great opportunity for educators to learn and expand their skills in an exciting and enjoyable environment.

Sturt Winter School 2017 is scheduled for Monday 3 - Friday 7 July, offering 14 adult courses and daily children's courses. Course information and online registration will be available at the beginning of March 2017.
