Student Article Featured on Best of School Newspapers Online

"Waking up in the midst of an African savanna to the sounds of elephants crashing through the woodland and the quiet stir of crickets, being immersed into the modest yet enviable lives of the indigenous Maasai tribes, and driving through a safari during a blushing African dawn- these are the experiences the Village School’s Tanzania Expedition has given to the students who attended the trip this year."

 

The above excerpt is taken from a beautfully written article by student Anna Z. that was recently featured on the Best of SNO (School Newspapers Online) website. This piece documented Anna's experience on an expedition to Tanzania, a trip taken annually by Village School students, hosted by Nord Anglia Education.

 

This expedition is an opportunity for students to discover a new culture, meet new people, explore new places and make a difference to the lives of others.

 

After a day of cultural immersion, students participate in local sustainable development projects. This includes working in local primary schools, children's centers and construction programs in villages. They then have the opportunity to go on an educational safari through the Tarangire National Park, learning about the region's diverse flora and fauna. 

 

In the run up to the expedition, students are responsible for fundraising for the service work they will carry out in Arusha. Raising money for the trip gives students ownership of the project as well as developing money management skills. 

 

This is a truly rewarding opportunity, where students make a significant impact on improving the lives of others while strengthening their own personal leadership, flexible thinking and teamwork skills.
