The Global Campus highlights for Secondary School in Term 3 will be the various globetrotting adventures and learning experiences, with several excited Secondary School students — Year 5 all the way up to Y10 — diligently preparing for their journeys.
These include the UNICEF Global Goals Summit in New York, an alpine adventure in Les Martinets, Switzerland and the STEAMfest taking place in Boston this week. To all of these students we wish safe travels, happy adventures and we can’t wait to hear about your extended learning.
We are also patiently waiting for the final decision of the Visual Arts competition that will be made on the 4th of May.
Les Martinets – 6 weeks to go – Going Uphill
The training with our 7 students for the Les Martinets hike continues. This week training focused on going uphill with more stair climbing and some students achieving a personal best for the number of floors ascended. Well done for your hard work. Not only do we train ourselves physically but we are also planning and preparing our equipment and proper clothing for the trip. This week we researched all about Switzerland – did you know that it is 10,340km away?
