A group of Year 10 students is travelling to Cambodia these school holidays to learn about the culture and spend time working at the Treak Community Centre on a Community Service Project.
Projects at the school include basic IT training, teaching English, and working in the library and Community Garden.

Treak Community Centre
The Students really enjoyed their time at the Treak community. Today they made collages with the students. The Treak students only learn Kumar, English and math so art was a great experience for them.
The Treak teachers are keen to develop and are working hard to incorporate STEM subjects. A part of this is tacking their plastic rubbish and using them to make ecobricks. They are hoping to use these ecobricks to build 4 new classrooms and toilets in the local community. Great Day!”
Fish foot therapy – (many of the students tried the treatment where fish eat the dead skin off your feet… Luckily no toes were lost) and Day 2 at the Treak Community Centre.
“All good in Cambodia. Everyone slept well. Didn’t go to see the sunrise as it’s overcast but will try for tomorrow. Off to the temples today and also to meet a monk. ”
