After months of fundraising today it was the day for a group of KSA students to head off to Peru to take part in a once in a lifetime challenge trip.
The students are all taking part in the Camps International month-long expedition which will see them spend time in different areas of Southern Peru including up in the Andes and during their stay they will be working together in teams to help improve the standard of living for rural communities.
They will also be participating in on-going conservation projects to help protect valuable and sensitive ecological areas as well as sometime for some sightseeing with the chance to visit the floating reed villages on Lake Titicaca and to complete the Salkantay Trek allowing them to view the famous Incan Ruins of Machu Picchu.
KSA Maths Teacher, Miss Anna Keen, who is one of the staff members accompanying the students on the trip, said: “We are all extremely excited to be on our way to Peru! The students have worked incredibly hard for the last year raising money and preparing for the expedition. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and we just can't wait to get started.”
