IEP field trip to Sangob Foundation

Term two marks our second learning outside of the classroom field trip in the IEP.

For this occasion students were treated to a day in a Karen Village courtesy of Sangob Foundation. During their visit they learned about sustainability through the lens of weaving; agriculture; education; trading and bartering and so much more.

It was an extremely valuable learning experience felt by all; students and teachers engaged with local villagers and the staff from Sangob making this a memorable experience.
