Director of Tours & Operations – Jim BennettJim Bennett

We want them to experience everything this world has to offer. To grow up into adults who have empathy, humility, and above all, a positive attitude towards life. In 1973, Department of Education Teacher, Jim Bennett, saw the world as a classroom and began taking his student groups across the country and around the Pacific. Experiencing education within the four walls of the school system was not enough and so he set his sights to further horizons!

With a passion for teaching, an aeroplane full of students and an intrepid spirit, Jim set off on a mission to bring the world into his classroom. And so the original educational travelling company, Classrooms Around the World, was born; a pioneer in meaningful learning experiences and exciting programs for schools, dance companies and other special interest groups.
