I heard some very positive feedback from students and parents about the recent Secondary School Learning Journeys - both the camps in Sukabumi and the Rustic Pathways trip to Thailand. I liked hearing about the genuine learning that took place in real life contexts rather than in the classroom, the important exposure to community service, the positive social interaction and the character building decisions students were faced with that are always part of such an adventure. Junior College are on camp in Sukabumi right now and I'm seeing some great photos already!

At the camps, our students helped to install running water in schools where there had been none. In Thailand, students helped construct affordable housing in a very different context to what they see in Indonesia.
