Between the 25th to the 30th June, a group of Year 12 and 13 students journeyed to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. They conducted a historical enquiry into the impact of French Colonialism and the Vietnam War on modern Vietnam as part of the International Gold Award.
The students explored the city’s various districts, visiting sites of significance from the French Colonial and Vietnam War eras such as the Reunification Palace, the Cu Chi Tunnels, the US Consulate and the War Remnants museum.
As part of their investigation the students also interviewed local residents on their views of these significant periods in Vietnamese history.
A big thank you to Mr Bourne who helped supervise the week trip.

This scheme recognises that a balanced education neither begins nor ends in the classroom and that much is to be gained by providing individual student challenge in areas such as: Skills, Physical Recreation, Community Service and Adventurous Journey.
