  • Stories from Abroad
    Cousteau the Sea of Cortez is one of the most diverse marine ecosystems on Earth From California Sea Lions to Green Sea Turtles to Bottlenose Dolphins and Gray Whales this aquatic environment boasts many large marine organisms as well as countless species of fish invertebrates and migratory birds In the Baja Island ecology class the rock reefs and islands of the Sea of Cortez serve as dynamic case studies for investing ecological principles human environmental impacts field research techniques and international conservation efforts This class presents a unique opportunity to merge online course work at SCH Academy with participation in authentic marine field research The classroom portion of the course takes place online via Haiku The field research component includes Phataria unifascialis parasite studies and Marine Benthic Invertebrate Census collections during a weeklong stay on the incomparable beautiful Espirito Santo Island just north of La Paz on the Baja California Peninsula Language Immersion by Betsy Grade 12 Senegal We flew into Dakar landing in the dark We slowly made our way through security and customs getting our passports stamped and our minds ready to speak French and experience a new culture We spent our first few days in the city where we met up with Senegalese girls attending the John F Kennedy School in Dakar Both the tenth graders from SCH and students from the JFK school had read renowned Senegalese author Mariama Bâ s novella So Long a Letter or Une Si Longue Lettre as it is originally titled I along with my fellow sophomore interviewed students from the JFK School in French about their perspectives on the novella and the themes contained in the book For the girls from JFK the novella discussed controversial topics that they actually dealt with such as modernity versus tradition and the prominence of multiple partner relationships The girls opinions were incredibly diverse Some of them believed in their traditions while others strongly advocated for change We thanked the girls for their interview and couldn t wait to see them again when we returned We drove out of Dakar to a village in Palmarin which was an isolated community surrounded by flatlands and baobab trees Upon our arrival we met with our host families I was greeted by two children from my family Hypoli and Agathe who did not hesitate to get to know me or my host sister from SCH We soon learned that this openness was teranga or hospitality which is one of the most important aspects of Senegalese life Our host dad Pierre explained to us in French that teranga is so important because it s about honesty and genuine interaction you treat your guests like you treat your family Unlike America where you feel like you have to prep for your guests and always be on your best behavior the Senegalese are much more open to inviting you into their homes and exposing you to everyday life You eat together around one bowl and you socialize with your family instead of locking yourself in your room Our family invited us to go to church with them and I am so happy that we did At church we were treated like family and everyone acted like we had known each other for ever even if we had just met Service Learning by Corinne Dionne Spanish Teacher New Zealand A group of twenty SCH students started their educational adventure to New Zealand in the early spring of 2015 Our preliminary classes were focused on where we were going and why we also discussed what figurative and literal items we wanted to leave home and in the same sense what we wanted to bring abroad Some of our leave behind items included cell phones schoolwork and social media The bring along items included knowledge positive attitude and a camera As summer approached these students worked on enhancing their knowledge of New Zealand We read National Geographic books watched The Whale Rider and shared interesting current events and bizarre did you know facts about New Zealand It was a collaborative learning environment and I really appreciated the students thirst for knowledge about this unique and beautiful country In the fall we focused our energy on preparing to travel we read articles and discussed the meaning of ethical travel Additionally we identified our American mindset and cultivated a growth mindset for our new host culture We quickly became a large family while supporting each other through thirty six hours of traveling This intensive journey makes the body and mind lackluster but these students pushed themselves to be in the moment every day and not just to participate but also to immerse themselves in whatever project was asked of them I was very proud of their willingness attitude and respect for the program in all capacities The majority of our service learning program took place in Mimiwhangata Coastal Park Over 300 000 acres this land was home to numerous Maori settlements Mimiwhangata is managed by the Department of Conservation and contains a number of archeological sites We camped in tents beachside and completed three days of volunteer work for environmental conservation and habitat restoration Some of our labor included woodcutting thistle grubbing and aloe bush transplanting The students were tired shower deprived and slightly sunburned but none of them ever uttered a complaint Instead they would smile drink some water and ask What else can I do The trip leaders service facilitator Maori community and Mr Ferrier and I were so impressed with their gracious attitude and their consistent diligent effort with the program s tasks This group of Upper School students represented SCH globally in the most positive and respectful way It was an honor and a privilege to share this experience with each of them A Nutella crêpe made on the streets of Saint Malo by Ellie Murphy Grade 11 I can still remember my very first authentic French crêpe I remember the way the Nutella poured out of the crispy pastry and
