Students from Collège Champittet and La Côte International School partake in the first ever Global Classroom trip to Africa

As part of Nord Anglia Education’s Global Classroom initiative, five students from Collège Champittet in Pully and seven students from La Côte International School in Vich have been selected to join the Tanzania Expedition that departed on Saturday, 1st of February.
  • The Global Classroom, providing a truly international education

The expedition will take place from 1 – 9 February 2014. Students from around the world will travel from their schools to a private camp in Arusha, Tanzania. Here they will take part in a series of activities designed to develop their understanding of local issues and to give them some practical experience of supporting a community. This expedition will give students the chance to discover new cultures, meet new people, explore new places and make a difference to the lives of others.

Students, parents and school leaders from both Collège Champittet and La Côte International School will be available for interviews after they return to Switzerland on February 9th.

Highlights of the Tanzania Expedition include:

  • In total, 106 students; 18 schools; 11 countries are represented on the Nord Anglia Education trip
  • The build-up to the expedition will find the students gaining an understanding of local and international Non Governmental Organisation’s and a rich knowledge of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.
  • Part of the project was for each student chosen to raise 600 pounds. Some of the fund-raising activities at Nord Anglia Education schools so far have been a 24 hour swimathon and "dancing your way to Tanzania Week long trip"
  • Our students arrive at the camp on Saturday 1 February.
  • They will build friendships with children in a local primary school and orphanage in Arusha, Tanzania, along with working on renovating classrooms and teaching a full day’s curriculum to the students. 
  • They will experience an ‘Africa Day’ and engage in a variety of activities (such as learning Swahili, glass beading, traditional Masai Dancing and cooking) which is being provided by local people to provide our students with an insight into the country we are visiting.
  • Our students also get to experience the diverse and varied landscape of the host country by undertaking a Safari or Zanzibar excursion. They will visit traditional Masai villages, discover the history of the Slave trade, visit plantations and spice markets to learn about agriculture and see wildlife in its natural habitat. With presentations and talks from local businesses and organisations such as The African Wildlife Foundation, students will gain an understanding of the link between land, animals and humans as well as learn about the benefits and challenges of the present and the future. 
  • The excursion is linked to High Performance Learning, by facilitating our students to become more open minded, to take risks and collaborate with others. These some of the Values, Attitudes and Attributes that we endorse for our students to become high performers.
