Tenby Schools’ Horizons Week programme is part of the Secondary school trip and the community-led programme is just one of the ten options offered. As part of a special community week, Tenby students recently help clean up the national park, spruced up a fire station, cared for animals in a shelter and brought smiles to an orphanage. More than two hundred students ages 11-15 chose a trip based on their passion. This is also to enhance their learning or to challenge their comfort zones in an exciting and safe environment.
 
Head of Secondary Elizabeth Cloke said: “Our annual horizon trips are led from the heart – it’s about exploring passions, demonstrating leadership and giving back to our community. Every year the trips get a little bigger, more exotic, as well as closer to home. She added, “Students take the opportunity to build on what they have learned within the four walls of their classroom and get out of their comfort zones. By completing meaningful projects, it is hoped that students will leave a lasting legacy on the community, for the school and themselves. Everyone gets involved to make a difference, learn more about themselves and achieve more than they ever thought they could, all within one week!”

This year’s trip is based on skill, cultural and leadership which included an in-school Photography, Samba Band, Coding, Sports Leaders and a Health & Fitness Award with service visits to Fire & Rescue Station at Bagan Jermal in Tanjung Tokong, Penang National Park. Students also did community activities and adventures including village clean-ups or orphanage visits to Perhentian Islands, Loola Eco Resort Bintan Island, Ho Chi Minh city and Gopeng.
