Northbridge students have previously visited Les Martines in 2018, and this will be the second year our students will have the opportunity to trek through the stunning Swiss Alps.
The trip is open to current Grade 5 and 6 students (i.e. students who will be in Grade 6 and 7 next academic year 2019-2020, beginning in August 2019).
The intention of this expedition is for students to learn wilderness skills and gain confidence through outdoor education programmes. It will also feature a trip to a glacial region to observe how glaciers are formed and the effects of climate change on these natural structures.
The Les Martines Resort is 90 minutes from Geneva International Airport situated in the canton of Vaud with easy access to the Valais and Western Bernese Oberland.
Students will have the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom and network with students from all around the world. They are given the opportunity to develop independence, confidence, leadership skills, flexible thinking, resilience, international networking, practical problem solving, organisation, and collaboration.
Moreover students will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to trek through one of the most picturesque mountainous regions on the planet.
