Experiencing life as a refugee with Crossroads – IB Retreat

By | CAS, Social Justice | No Comments

 

During the two day IB Retreat for grade 11, students took time away from learning about the IB program, CAS and Extended Essays to have a truly eye-opening experience with the Crossroads team. Students spent 45 minutes in the life of a refugee in a crises zone. It was a personally challenging, deeply moving and eye-opening experience for the students who are pictured in a group reflection with Crossroads Director David Begbie. Many students have commented that this experience has encouraged them to take action in their personal lives and through their future CAS experiences.
