The trip headed by Ms. Alice Williams
has been successfully running for seven years partnering with Little Planet
and Juara Turtle Project
. Students got the opportunity to go jungle trekking, kayaking and snorkelling and did team building activities on the beach. Another focus of the service activities was creating a waste management system for the village using Reduce, Reuse and Recycle principals.
This trip has been running successfully for six years. Students spent their time at the Angkor Rural Children Education Project (ARCEP)
centre where they taught English and Maths to the children in the rural village school in Siem Reap. Besides that, they also helped to dig more fish ponds for the sustainability of the centre and donated to replace their school roof.
Reach Out activities are all non-residential trip based in and around the Klang Valley. There were four different options for students to choose from: teaching, painting, day trips and special Olympics.
The five-day trip saw students learning on local cultures and history, while partnering with British International School Vietnam
to work with street children from different orphanages.
The project was newly introduced where students worked with the indigenous community in Gombak, Selangor. The students helped to set up a ‘Herb Garden’ in front of their community centre and taught the indigenous children English and Maths.
The trip offered an opportunity for students to obtain a PADI Open Water Diver license, while contributing and taught English to local children in Redang. The students also learnt how to propagate corals.
The Kuching Experience
Kuching Experience aimed to help the less privileged children of the Salvation Army Boys Home
and the Children’s Home
in Kuching by spending time with them, playing and learning about their local cultures.
This Discovery Week trip took students to the Bifengxia Panda Reserve
in Chengdu. It was an unique opportunity, as the students had a chance to see areas of the reserve that are not normally visited by the public, worked as volunteers cleaning the Pandas, delivered bamboos and helped collecting Panda data.
Chiang Mai Trip
Students had the chance to experience many different activities that weren’t possible in Malaysia such as bathing elephants and visiting sacred Thai temples. They headed to an international school in Mai Rin and experienced some Thai culture and spent some time in the indigenous village, helping to paint the school there.
