Sharing the Experience

Our students have spoken at staff PD , whole school assembly and governing council about their experiences with Projects Abroad in Cambodia . Their heartfelt stories of their time in Cambodia have been inspirational . They speak about the growth they experienced and their sense of gratitude.
” When we went to placement at the start of each day, everyone was always really cheerful and we couldn’t help but to wave as we drove in. Every day that we went there they would be waiting with flower crowns and little bouquets they made by themselves; some even made bracelets out of leaves too. They were amazing kids, and the teachers there were really helpful as well. They were so cheerful and adorable and every single one of them had such a beautiful personality. They were never sad, even when they get pushed and shoved they’d always have the biggest smiles on their faces. They may not be rich in money but they definitely are in kindness and love.
I, along with everyone else are exceedingly proud of everyone who took this step and actually committed to it. I am very glad that I decided to do this. It has helped my confidence; as well as inspired me in many ways. I am very grateful that I could share this memory with such amazing teachers and students they are all so kind and will help with anything.”

Everyday when our two buses left the school the kids would line up along the path and throw flowers and shout ‘goodbye teacher!’ It was like we were leaving forever. On the last day when we were officially leaving the emotions that filled the air as the students realised we were leaving for good, words just can’t describe.
We found out that the directors son who we nicknamed ‘zero’ because he didn’t speak was actually going to be using the kindergarten that we had built! This melted our hearts!
I am forever changed from this experience, it has made me a better person and made me only want to give selflessly more in the future.
