At the end of last term the first of our overseas trips for 2009 departed to Vietnam and Cambodia. Our students raised $3500 to contribute to three community projects in these countries. Very impressive and much appreciated by the communities! These trips are an important aspect of our students developing a global perspective and experiencing life in other parts of the world. It is not easy for adolescents to witness the impact of the Killing Fields, to see enormous poverty side by side with opulence, or Issue 4, 14 May 2009 to see facilities for students with disabilities in other countries. Our students were very courageous in their approach to these challenges and they have returned wiser and more appreciative of the lifestyle we have in Australia. If your family has the opportunity it is important for every student to participate in one of these trips. For more details see the enclosed insert. Student Survey Last year over 800 students participated in an online survey aimed at sharing information with teachers about what improves learning. Student leaders shared this information with staff who then used it to reflect on their teaching practice and to set themselves improvement goals. In term 1 student leaders shared the survey results with all students and asked them to use this information to talk with their - 1 - Photo from Vietnam / Cambodia trip in April (see article enclosed)
