On 20 September, a group of 26 Braemar College students and staff headed off to Cambodia, aiming to see ancient Angkor Wat and work with the people of Treak Village.

Designed to offer a service opportunity to Year 10 students, the trip is part of Braemar College’s Community Service Program, and involves three days of voluntary work at a local school and in a Sun Bear rehabilitation centre. Students will undertake a series of hard physical tasks to improve conditions for the students at the village. The program allows students to complete components of their Duke of Edinburgh award.

The temples at Angkor Wat were amazing.
