During the September holidays, 23 students will be travelling as two teams to Vietnam for a two-week expedition World Challenge Expedition. The expedition teams will experience the sights, tastes and sounds of Hanoi and Halong Bay and take part in a trek and community project in the Mai Chau region.
In preparation for the trip, we all participated in an Urban Day on 30 April which involved travelling as a group around the Melbourne CBD and Williamstown. The aim of the day was to introduce teams to the leadership system we will use in Vietnam, work together as a team and learn about life on their upcoming trip. Both teams had an enjoyable day and it was fantastic to see everyone step up in their leadership, teamwork, communication and also start to get to know each other better.
Throughout Term 2 and 3 teams will start to focus on fundraising to contribute towards their community projects in Mai Chau.
