Grade 11 Rafts the Sunkhosi on Service Nepal

The Grade 11 Service Nepal trip was one that will not soon be forgotten. The trip involved four days of rafting on the Sunkhosi River. The class camped on a different river beach each night where they had to pitch their own tents and use toilet tents! The service focus of the trip included collecting water samples along the way in order to analyze the overall health of the river and ecosystem. Students also visited and enjoyed getting to know the students from a local school. In addition, several students created some amazing art from artifacts found along the river. Each student has their own highlights from the trip, but all can agree that this Service Nepal trip was nothing short of amazing! As some students remarked, “As a class, we were ‘shook’ to our cores, beyond the Sunkhosi shores.”
