This year three teams have headed overseas on expedition
Every two years Balcarras pupils in year 11, 12 and 13 take part in an overseas expedition. These are part of a two year program where pupils work on teamwork, leadership and communication skills. The pupils do a number of fund raising projects throughout the year, and all of their hard work has now come to fruition.
The expeditions consist of a physical challenge, normally a trek or journey. A project of some sort, wither with local people, animals or conservation work. There is also a chance to learn and experience a totally new culture. This year we have expeditions in Zambia and Botswana, as well as in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.
