The City Express is a fantastic Burgmann initiative which builds on budgeting, planning and team work skills.

City Express is a compulsory, yet fantastic Burgmann initiative for Year 10 students.

It builds on the budgeting, planning and teamwork skills learnt during Capital Challenge in Year 9 and the yearly camp program. It aims to simulate a mini 'Gap Year' experience.

Students participate in their preferred destination where they are challenged with a budget for spending money on an pre-approved itinerary including some of the following:

  • A recreational activity
  • A visit to a museum or gallery
  • Visiting a church
  • Exploring a University campus
  • A cultural dining experience
  • Assisting with a social cause or charity
  • Walking more than 4km
  • Researching and visiting one key aspect of the destination city
