Dear Guardians and Students,

Working in partnership with World Challenge, we’re excited to bring you something out of the ordinary – an expedition travelling to Vietnam & Laos in December 2019. This once in a lifetime opportunity that will set students apart, empowering you to stand strong in front of employers and universities. Join us on Wednesday 28th March at 6.30pm at Nayland College Library, we’d love to tell you more about it.

We share a belief that by empowering the students to lead their own expedition, they will go on to live a life of courage, kindness and adventure. From tough treks to new cultures, the day-to-day challenges of expedition life encourages students to develop life skills and build deeper confidence, resilience and empathy.

With over thirty years’ experience taking away over 8,000 students every year, World Challenge lead the way in quality, safety, ethical community engagement and learning outcomes. Guided by an adult leadership team, they will step out of their comfort zones and take on roles and the leadership of their group, managing a budget, planning meals and choosing accommodation.

Join Allan Hodges to hear more. Come along to find out ideas about how to raise the expedition fee in the build-up to departure, to the depth of safety and support.
