On 6th December, our students were invited to attend a presentation given by the organization, Operation Wallacea.
This international organization offers a unique opportunity for students (16-18 years old) to participate in scientific expeditions around the world, researching into areas including Biodiversity and Nature Conservation, working together with researchers and university professors from around the world.
This experience gives students the opportunity to develop crucial academic, personal and professional skills, which will undoubtedly be an essential contribution to the student’s future, such as:
- improved understanding of curricula through practical involvement and learning experiences at the school level;
- an opportunity for students to obtain specific qualifications: research qualifications, essays or research projects, university credits for foreign universities, diving certification, among others;
- practical fieldwork experience;
- an opportunity to establish an international network of contacts;
- immersion in an international experience where the spoken language is English.
St. Peter's International School students will take part in the 2020 expedition to Madagascar from 5th to 17th July. This expedition will focus on research into forest biodiversity (birds, bats, lemurs, butterflies, among others) during the first week, and on the reefs of the northern part of the island during the second week.
A parents’ meeting will be held soon to give further information on this amazing and unique experience.
Join us on this adventure!
