Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,
We are excited to announce that, once again, we’re working in partnership with World Challenge to bring you something out of the ordinary. An expedition travelling to Thailand & Cambodia in 2022. This once in a lifetime opportunity will set students apart, empowering them to stand strong in front of universities and employers.
Much more than a school trip
We share a belief that by empowering the students to lead their own expedition, they will go on to live a life of courage, kindness and adventure. From tough treks to new cultures, the day-to-day challenges of expedition life encourages students to develop life skills and build deeper confidence, resilience and empathy.
You’re in expert hands
With over thirty years’ experience taking away over 8,000 students every year, World Challenge lead the way in quality, safety, ethical community engagement and learning outcomes. Guided by an adult leadership team, they will step out of their comfort zones and take on roles and the leadership of their group.
World Challenge and COVID-19
We understand that there may be some concern when making travel plans at this time. Hopefully the impact of COVID-19 on travel would be significantly reduced by 2022. World Challenge will only travel to a destination if they have assessed the situation and it will be safe to do so at the time. They also have a ‘Booking with Confidence Pledge’ to provide some reassurance to parents that their money is safe and will be refunded if the expedition is cancelled due to COVID-19.
Virtual Parents Information Night
During the presentation, students were directed to head over to the tailored landing page which has information about the itinerary, insurance, post COVID safety and also a sign up button for the virtual parents information evening which is going to be held on Wednesday 16th June at 6:00pm. This will be an opportunity for you and your son or daughter to find out more information about the trip and ask any questions you may have. To sign up to this event here are some instructions:
