Learning Outcomes

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.
