I recently accompanied our Grade 5 students to Lantau Island, a small landform off of Hong Kong, for a 2-day overnight service and action trip. The day trips included multiple service activities, including beach clean-up, planting trees, and composting. Additionally, they learned about the wide variety of ecosystems that are contained on Lantau, making it a very unique island. Finally, they engaged in organic farming, and participated in activities related to environmental conservation and Global Citizenship. It was a truly beautiful trip, and our students grew in both social and academic realms.
