For 4 weeks in July 2017, Miss Craig and Miss Archibald will lead a group of 6 year 12 & 13 students to Borneo with the organisation Camps International. They will be joining up with groups from three other schools in Northern Ireland.
Arriving at Kota Kinabalu, they will be travelling to several locations in Borneo throughout the four week trip. The overall aim of the trip is to assist with community projects, such as teaching English and improving water facilities in small villages. The adventure will also involve a four day jungle trek, with a little downtime to explore some village markets.
Camps International organise expeditions and trips to countries around the world with the aim of solving global problems on a local scale. They support small communities in helping improve their facilities which in turn promotes long term benefits.
