2019 Vietnam Service Learning Tour
This tour is designed to give Year 11 students the opportunity to travel and experience life in a developing country. The tour will give students an insight into Vietnamese culture and provide service learning experiences which will enhance both their personal and academic development.
A key aspect of the tour includes visiting and working in the orphanage we support, The Centre for the Old and Disabled, Ba Vi.
PLC Sydney Year 11 students made their first annual trip to this orphanage in 2012 and since then have taken part in some incredible work. The orphanage is in great need of our assistance. Students will spend quality time with the children and help staff develop future programs of support.
There are also many opportunities to discover the culture of Vietnam passing through Hanoi with side trips to the magnificent Hoi An and Ha Long Bay.
Students will finish off the tour by visiting the confronting War Remnants Museum and Cu Chi tunnels in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), putting their experience at the orphanage into context.
