With departure less than two weeks away excitement is building. What will this tour be like? What experiences will the students have? What will be those transformation moments? What will be the long term gain for each student?
It is this last question that had me thinking about what does Australia expect to gain from these trips. What does the government hope to achieve via the New Colombo Plan?
It seems that there is big expectations and a strong commitment to the concept of international experiences for students being very worthwhile. If our past tours are anything to go by I am sure the Goverment will not be disappointed.
