Year 6's expedition to Ta Lai - Cat Tien

Last week, the children of 6S, 6C and 6H were lucky enough to visit the Cat Tien national park for their annual residential trip. They enjoyed a range of activities over the duration and camped in tents for the majority of the evenings.

Straight away, upon arrival, the children were given a task to build a bench for their camp as a team-bonding exercise and that same ethic continued throughout. The children visited the charity ‘EAST’, in which they took part in important surveys of the local gibbon population and even helped to paint one of the facility buildings!

There were many physical challenges along the way, including a 12km cycle-ride, a low-ropes course between trees, an educational jungle-trek and a multi-tasked team race on the last morning! The children also got to enjoy some local pleasantries, meeting the local Chau Ma people who showed them traditional dances before getting them involved. It was really nice to see our children meeting people (both other children and adults) from another culture and representing our school in such a polite and well-mannered way.

There were other highlights including river-swimming, a big dance around a campfire, kayaking, quiz and movie nights and lessons in cooking. The week was jam-packed! I’m sure all of the children returned to Ho Chi Minh exhausted, but also with a greater sense of maturity and self-sufficiency than when they left. Well done, children! And thanks for your efforts.
