Our teachers have been busy working with students on getting their visa's organised for Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia. All of the students that require visa's have been spoken to and information on the process sent to them. Please take time to check with your student/ward to see if they need a visa. Students are also learning about the communities they will be working with and have begun fund raising for fruit trees and educational supplies. The WWW trips are a wonderful opportunity for our students to give back to the community and really embrace service learning and the gift of giving. Please contact the HS office if you have any questions about WWW (email@example.com)
