Grade 9/10 Service and Leadership Trips
The tangible power of experiential education is evident on curriculum, leadership and service trips. Students have an incredible opportunity to be actively and closely involved with other countries whose residents are not as fortunate as ours along with gaining firsthand experience of content taught within the classroom.
UAS offers education outside the classroom to foster fully developed individuals – the students that have been involved in our International Curriculum, Leadership and Service Projects are proof that they work.
A number of our trips provide leadership opportunities for the participants. Each day the team responsibilities rotate – students each take turns at the role of assistant leader, before assuming the group leader role the following day. In addition they are required to be part of the finance team, the cooking team, the environmental team as well as being responsible for organizing group accommodation and transport. These are tasks that test even the most self-assured student.
Students who were part of our Service and Leadership trips, since 2009, have developed significantly; they are, by one parent’s admission, ‘better people’ and ‘simply more aware, in every sense of the word.’
