International Study Tour to Sumatra

​As you would know, we have sponsored a village in Sumatra called Tangkahan.  Our school has raised funds so that the village can expand their current village school from one classroom to two classrooms and a library to meet the growing needs of their community.

Excitedly, in addition to that, we have been successful in applying to take a small group of children on a study tour to Sumatra.  We will visit Medan, Bukit Lawang and Tangkahan.  The tour will take place in the first week of the September holidays and children in Years 5 and 6 are eligible to apply. 8 children will be selected and accompanied by 8 staff members including Mrs King and myself.

I will be holding information talks on this tour next Tuesday 19 April 2016 at 3:30pm and 5:30pm.

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please attend one of these talks, with your child.  I will share detailed information about this tour and answer questions that you may have.
Following this, children who have your consent and who would like to be considered for this tour, will be asked to write an application for them to be considered for the trip.

Applications will need to be handed in at the office, with signed consent forms, no later than Friday 29 April 2016.  All applicants will be informed of the outcome the following week.

This is a fantastic opportunity for our children and we are very excited to be able to offer this tour to our Year 5 and 6 children.
