It's go time!
Students participate in two main projects over the course of the month. The first project is inquiry-based. Students investigate a topic of their choice that relates to the host community. For example, students have looked at local production and marketing of textiles, small-business case studies and investigations into fishing industries.
The second project is called Service Learning. Students capture oral histories from local residents in a short film that is shared with the public. Students partner with elderly citizens to explore big ideas such as the joy of living, life lessons and personal experiences.
The projects foster intergenerational and intercultural respect. Students gain a deeper understanding of themselves and society.
