MASEA 2016

On the 28 June 2016, twenty seven excited Year 11 students and three teachers left Te Puke High School on the annual 17-day overseas educational adventure called MASEA (Malaysian and Singaporean Educational Adventure) 2016.

The group flew from Auckland to the island of Penang off the northwest coast of mainland Malaysia.  From there, the group travelled down through Malaysia for 10 days to Singapore. The itinerary was physically and mentally challenging for the group.  Along the way the students learnt a great deal about Malaysia and Singapore, including:  religions, cultures, food, architect, art  and history.  In addition, the group visited two schools, so that our students can engage in educational activities with students from a totally different culture.  The students learnt a lot about themselves and developed the skills at self management.

The aim of the trip is to provide Te Puke High School students with opportunities and challenges to help them develop as global citizens.

The cost of the trip was $4,500 per person, most of which was raised through fundrasing by the students and their families in the year leading up to the trip.
