Back in 2012, when our current Year 9 students were in Year 5, I was fortunate enough to lead their annual expedition to Cuc Phuong. During this year’s trip to Sa Pa I was able to see and experience how well our students have developed as global citizens over the years.

During the first half of our trip, students took part in a range of team building activities, helping one another complete a number of demanding challenges to win points for their House. Our students showed exceptional leadership skills and were extremely supportive of all who took part. In the latter half of the trip, our students began their service work with a local school and the local community which included donating clothes to students and community members, and building a road for that school. The service projects became more meaningful as our students began to realise that their efforts had a huge impact on the people they met, whether it was funding local families and their businesses so they could live comfortably; clothing children in preparation for a cold winter; or building a road to improve living conditions for those who use it.

The trip and efforts of our students could be summed up by the words of local village members and trip organisers, who claimed that we, as a school community, should be very proud of our students, particularly how they conducted themselves and how their service work contributed to those in need in Sa Pa. 

Mr. Mark Atkinson, ECA Programme Coordinator
