Student trip to Cambodia

During the last break a group of 15 OFS G12 students initiated a trip to Cambodia. After enjoying the school service trip back in June 2012, where they were first acquainted with the children of the PACDOC orphanage, they were so determined to go back that they took it upon themselves to arrange the entire trip - flights, accommodation, and transport to and from the orphanage as well as the work that was to be done there was all organised independently by the students themselves. In a collective effort, they were able to raise money which covered the cost of building an entire new classroom for the school and the painting supplies they needed for painting a mural on the ceiling of the new classroom. Here is a short video of their experiences.
