Beyond the Classroom | About Us

Beyond the Classroom was launched in 2012 as part of Surf & Sun, the multi award winning surf school on the Fleurieu Peninsula.

Surf & Sun has been operating school and outdoor education activities since 2001 and after much demand from the education market in South Australia commenced the Beyond the Classroom SA brand, to specialise in quality school camps and activities throughout South Australia.

Beyond the Classroom SA is owned by Luke Talbot-Male.  Luke grew up in the Adelaide Hills and both parents were school teachers.  Over the years Luke realised that South Australia needed a quality school camp provider that met the needs of teachers and Beyond the Classroom was born.

Beyond the Classroom aim to offer teachers a simple and stress free school camp experience that tick all the boxes both in terms of curriculum and student satisfaction.

School camps are managed by Gary Haworth and on the team there are multiple qualified school teachers as well as many experienced and qualified program facilitators and instructors to ensure that the programs deliver each and every time.

Beyond the Classroom believe in their programs and if a school is not satisfied with an activity they will receive a credit toward their next experience. This guarantee sets Beyond the Classroom apart from the rest.

We hope you enjoy your Beyond the Classroom experience.
