The World Challenge trips are 4 week expeditions which take place every 2 years to remote locations in distant countries. They are open to students in year 10 to 13. The venture is designed to let students develop their leadership qualities. Students take a direct responsibility in organising all aspects of the trip including transport, finance, food, accommodation and the purchase of material for the project. Students take turns in leading the expedition. They go to places that are not normally visited by tourists and work within the local community. These can be life-changing trips and the experience they gain is highly prized by universities and prospective employers. All students fund raise over a period of 15 months to help meet the cost of this expedition.
Previous destinations have been to Namibia, Ledakh in India, Bolivia and Mexico.
