Spring Break is usually a time of much needed reprieve during a busy semester of studies and school commitments, when students typically go home and visit family and friends, or perhaps jet off to a tropical location for some relaxation. However, for the 5th year in a row, an eager group of eleven LAS students and two teachers took the opportunity to embark on a two-week “Service & Safari” adventure to Zimbabwe. Partnering with Sethule Orphans Trust, they dedicated their school holiday to working in the rural communities near Bulawayo, exchanging cultural experiences with the locals as well as each other, and creating truly indelible memories. They veritably embodied the LAS mission statement by being innovative, compassionate, and responsible citizens of the world.
