Show to aid TPHS so­journ

Te Puke Times - - NEWS - By ALAN LIDDLE Te Puke High School prin­ci­pal

From 2007 to 2014, Te Puke High School stu­dents have en­joyed an over­seas ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence in Sin­ga­pore.

Start­ing in 2015, our stu­dents were given the op­por­tu­nity to be in­volved in a more ex­ten­sive over­seas ed­u­ca­tional ad­ven­ture in Malaysia and Sin­ga­pore.

The aim is to pro­vide Te Puke High School stu­dents with op­por­tu­ni­ties and chal­lenges to help them de­velop as global cit­i­zens.

Next year’s trav­el­ling group will fly from Auck­land to the is­land of Pe­nang off the coast of main­land Malaysia. From there, the group will travel down through Malaysia to Sin­ga­pore for ap­prox­i­mately three weeks.

The itin­er­ary will chal­lenge our stu­dents, phys­i­cally and men­tally.

We are plan­ning to visit two schools so that our stu­dents can en­gage in ed­u­ca­tional ac­tiv­i­ties with stu­dents from a to­tally dif­fer­ent cul­ture.

It is an­tic­i­pated that a re­la­tion­ship will be de­vel­oped between Te Puke High school and a Malaysian com­mu­nity, lead­ing to our stu­dents be­ing en­gaged in an on­go­ing com­mu­nity ser­vice project.

Stu­dents in­volved in the trip, along with their par­ents/care­givers, are given the op­por­tu­nity to be in­volved in fundrais­ing to help cover the cost of the trip.

Stu­dents from Te Puke High School are fundrais­ing for a trip to Malaysia and need your help.
