Tanzania Expedition Summer 2014
Four team comprised of our Y11, Y12 & Y13 students researched and then lead their own expedition to Tanzania, East Africa in the summer of 2014. Students were responsible for planning the itinerary, booking accommodation, travel and activities. They liaised with local people, handled the budget and took turns leading the expeditions.
Students trekked in remote mountain regions, undertook a safari and worked on community projects in four separate villages. This was a unique opportunity to develop communication, team work and leadership skills in a challenging and fascinating environment.
This was the third expedition we have run with True Adventure, having been to India in 2010 and Borneo in 2012.
Four mixed teams of 57 Year 11, 12 & 13 students spent a month on expedition in Malaysian Borneo in the summer of 2012. Activities included week long community projects, involving building a bridge, a toilet block, a garden, and helping to complete a Sunday School. A large number of students made it to the summit of Mount Kinabalu, the highest peak in South-East Asia and all participated in one or more demanding jungle trek. R&R activities ranged from snorkelling, to river boat safaris and visiting some of the world’s largest caves.
