Camps International - Borneo 2020

As a school, we are very excited that we are once again partnering with Camps International to offer students in Years 10, 11 and 12 the opportunity to go on a life-changing 4-week expedition to Borneo, during the summer of 2020.

An expedition to Borneo will be an amazing opportunity for students to step outside their comfort zone and experience another culture. Whilst away, students will live alongside rural communities and work on humanitarian projects which include helping to build classrooms or community centres and combating deforestation and protecting wildlife. The group will be visiting the Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary to see orphaned and injured orangutans before they are released back into the wild. Students will also have the chance to undertake an adventure element, which will be an accredited PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) Scuba Diving course.

The 18 Year 10 and 11 students who have signed up for the trip have already started work on fundraising. So far they have been bag packing, carol singing, car washing, selling Christmas cards, face painting, planning a Christmas jumper day and running a coffee morning. The Christmas cards, in two designs, are available from the students and from the Main Office.

Miss Hartley will be accompanying the students on the trip and said “I’m incredibly proud of how hard the students are working and what they’ve learnt already. The fundraising they are doing isn’t just about paying for the trip, it is also about learning lots of new skills which will help them in Borneo and beyond.”

If you are involved in a business in the area and would be interested in supporting the students with their fundraising, please contact Miss Hartley for more details: ruthhartley@allertongrange.com, 0113 393 0304.
