Costa Rica 2019 Information Evening

See Mr Johnson for forms if you missed the meeting


Wednesday 24th January at 6.00pm
Upper Oldfield Park Campus Hall

Hayesfield Girls’ School is pleased to be launching an incredibly opportunity for all students in Years 10, 11 and 12.

Working in partnership with World Challenge, we’re excited to bring you something out of the ordinary – an expedition travelling to Costa Rica in 2019. This once in a lifetime opportunity will set you apart, empowering you to stand strong in front of potential employers and universities. Join us on Wednesday 24th January at 6.00pm, we’d love to tell you more about it.

Unlike other school trips our students may have experienced where everything is organised by adults and an itinerary is provided for them, beyond the flights there and back and the first night’s accommodation, the students take leadership and responsibility roles to organise the rest of the expedition themselves. Naturally, there is support and students select treks and projects from a range of existing options, but the on-the-ground transport, accommodation, language, meal logistics are all student choices.

Time will be spent trekking – mountain or jungle, long or short – you will decide. A key element will be the community project – working with children, engaging with a local community, supporting an ecology project – the choice is yours. And of course there will be some rest and relaxation – from relaxing on the beach to kayaking down the rivers, via snorkeling and dolphin-, turtle-, whale-watching, and flying high above the luscious forest canopies on a zipwire – it’s entirely up to you!

If that sounds appealing to you, then come along to the meeting in the Hall at Upper Oldfield Park at 6pm on Wednesday 24th of January to find out more. In the meantime, why not check out the World Challenge website to find out a little more about our destination country and to have a look at a sample itinerary?

I look forward to seeing students, parents and carers at the information evening.
