2019 DHS World Challenge Team
Later this year the Darwin High School World Challenge team of nineteen students and three teachers, will head to Malawi and Zambia in Africa. The group will spend thirty days exploring the region and participating in a community project.
Each of the students are required to nominate themselves for the challenge and in addition to fundraising are are encouraged to get a part time job to help contribute to funding their trip.
The students spend two years preparing for the challenge and play a big role in the planning and development of the trip, including choosing the activities and community project. While they don’t require any prior skills to nominate, by participating in the challenge they will learn leadership, teamwork and organisation skills that allow them to travel independently in developing countries in the future.
The physical preparation for their journey includes keeping fit and completing a training trip which gives them some basic skills that will help them to identify risks and manage their safety. The group have planned their itinerary and are now working hard to fundraise for their community project. You can support them by attending their upcoming Quiz Night on Friday 10 May or by emailing [email protected]
We look forward to sharing further updates on the World Challenge Team as they continue their preparation throughout the year.
