Who We Are

As tutors, teachers, mentors and educators we want to create the best possible learning experiences for our student groups.

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.

Since 1988, we’ve been perfecting our international educational tours to all corners of the globe. Over the years we’ve developed
our touring experiences and have well and truly dotted our ‘i’s’ and crossed our ‘t’s’. We can show you all the top places, key learning experiences and best ways to link activities to your school’s curriculum so your students can achieve personal and career centred outcomes. We can skip the lines, get the backstage passes and ensure the quickest flights. We can guarentee the most suitable accomodation and the most efficient and reliable modern luxury coaches.

Our experienced team love to look after all of our travellers and make things run completely stress-free. The only thing you and your students will need to do is make sure you’re at the airport and we’ll do the rest.

“The highest reward for a person’s toil is not what they get for it, but what they become by it.” – Jim Bennett
