Venue: Room 2.5, Morison Centre.
At the presentation, we will discuss the program, its benefits, safety and back-up, fundraising support and answer any questions you have about this unique and rewarding educational opportunity.
This tour, conducted by Antipodeans, gives students the opportunity of an amazing educational experience in the world beyond the classroom, in the new destination of Peru, South America.
The tour will take in the sites of Peru such as Arequipa, Cusco, Sacred Valley, Ollantaytambo, the Condors in the Colca Canyon, the floating islands of Lake Titicaca, and of course, the UNESCO heritage site of Machu Picchu.
As well as visiting these amazing sites, this small group tour will be one that focusses in part on developing the skills of young people highlighted in the Radford Learner. Students will travel as a team with supervising teachers and an Antipodeans Tour Leader. They will:
- visit and learn about Antipodeans sustainable community projects that are linked to the UN Global Compact and its sustainable impact goals
- experience Global Citizenship/Internationalism - cultural immersion, understanding/awareness/mindfulness
- experience personal development through personal challenge, and self-regulation leading to resilience development
- engage with Curriculum areas, specifically sustainable tourism, environmental education, history, geography, Spanish language, and
- participate in Team Fundraising for the Antipodeans Community Project contribution.
