CKSS Students Go Abroad

CKSS Students Go Abroad

Over the March break certain CKSS students participated in a Me to We and Education First sponsored trip to China. The trip was an excellent opportunity for students to gain exposure other cultures. It also provided these students and staff members with opportunities to bond with young Chinese orphans, and the chance to witness another secondary school in a major Chinese city. No trip to China would be complete, however, without also visiting important monuments like the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, and the Summer Palace.
Education First run tours were created in 1965, “built on a philosophy of experiential learning, cultural immersion, and authentic connections,” according to the group themselves. For fifty years they have run educational voyages which help students understand what it is like to live in countries other than their own.
Next year, CKSS students will be going on another EF tour to Tanzania. Andrew Annis, grade 12 student, and voyager in the China trip as well as last year’s Ecuador trip, stated, “If I could come back to go on another trip with EF, I would. These trips were life changing.”
If you missed out on this years March break excursion to China, then make sure you see Mrs. McPhee to sign up to go to Tanzania ASAP.
