Guizhou CAS Trip
Though Guizhou is said to be one of the most impoverished provinces in China, it has vast wealth in natural wonders and biological species. Home to Asia’s largest waterfall as well as 5 species of vertebrate found only in Guizhou, this is the unbeaten-path’s prime destination. Our itinerary features the Huangguoshu Falls- largest waterfall in Asia, service projects with a minority school, joining the bright angels band (student led blind student band), traditional Miao-style batik classes, hikes, tea-picking, and company visits as well as a chilling visit to a former Chinese concentration camp.
Creativity & Service; with service activities ranging from batik projects, designing and building furniture, to creating music – this itinerary tests students’ creative application skills by requiring them to blend their creativity with meaningful service.
Action; walking students home after school (equivalent to daily hikes), hiking surrounding mountains, and tea-picking, we aim for students to develop confidence, fun, and positive associations to exercise.
Socio-historical knowledge; students will be exposed to a range of different social and historical facets of the Guizhou region. Visiting its top landmark (Huangguoshu Falls), interacting with her indigenous peoples, as well as seeing the darker sides of her history (Xifeng concentration camp), students are sure to walk away with a broad yet deep understanding of this little-known part of China.
