CCS students visit Senegal

Over the Thanksgiving vacation, Christchurch School Director of Global Education Aaron Alter and a group of faculty and students traveled to Senegal where they lived in a Mandinka village, safaried in West Africa’s largest national park as well as a private game reserve, explored remote islands and communities in an expansive mangrove delta, learned about distinctive interpretations of Islam and Christianity, and visited historic sites, including Goree Island.  

Christchurch School’s Global Education Program is designed to increase student understanding of and engagement with the international community through curriculum-driven travel and active relationships with communities around the world. Each experience focuses on developing and applying real-world skills, connecting the classroom with the international world, and helping students make meaning of intense personal experiences and learning opportunities. Students embed in rural communities, living and working alongside local residents on service projects designed with input by residents and CCS students. 

Other Global Ed offerings this year include trips to the US/Mexico border, India, China, and Guatemala.
