Sixth Form Global Citizen Trip to Thailand
At Scarisbrick Hall School we recognise the importance of developing our pupils within a Global Society. Throughout the school, children are encouraged to take part in activities and excursions that enrich them with culture and provide an insight into the world in which they live in.
Our Global Citizen Trip is a fantastic opportunity for our Sixth Form pupils to further their learning and development. The trips are specially curated by our Head of Sixth Form to ensure that our students are challenged and recognise global issues.
In October 2022, a number of our Sixth Form pupils visited Thailand on a global expedition that saw them become emerged in the local culture and explore a wide range of Thai practices.
At the start of their trip, our Sixth Form pupils visited a Turtle Conservation Centre where they had the opportunity to look after endangered turtles and see first-hand how the centre is working hard to protect the species.
The students then visited a local school, where they helped build a new structure out of recycled materials harvested from a nearby beach. After their hard work, the students had fun playing football with members of the local community and planted herbs and spices to ensure sustainability within the area.
As the trip progressed, our pupils continued their exploration by visiting a Muay Thai gym in Rawai. This allowed our students to learn the art of Muay Thai, which is a combat sport that applies stand up striking alongside various clinching methods.
Our pupils also had the opportunity to explore the vast environments Thailand has to offer, by visiting the local beaches and climbing a 500+ year old tree in the Banyan Forest. Pupils later had the chance to visit Khao Sok National Park, go on a jungle hike, explore caves and sleep on a floating hotel. An early morning boat safari was planned to enable the students spot wild elephants, Monkeys, and a wide range of exotic birds.
Sixth Form pupil Francesca C said, “I would definitely recommend anyone to go on the trip if you were given the opportunity, it has definitely made me more globally aware and aware of the differences in our lifestyles and cultures.”
