Walford’s strong outreach program provides life-changing service learning opportunities abroad and on remote indigenous homelands in Australia, where students can work collaboratively to apply their knowledge and capabilities to meet genuine community needs.
The uniquely tailored excursions are designed to immerse students in a cultural experience that is different from their own, fostering their global citizenship and inspiring a passion for making a difference beyond the school gates. Students are involved in the planning of the expeditions, fostering their agency and growing their leadership skills.
Taking place every two years, some of the destinations visited include Nepal, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Vanuatu. The next excursion is planned for 2022 and will take place in Australia.
