Y7 Crossroads Trip

Dear Parents,

As part of their Global Thinking Skills course students are studying a unit of work about poverty so we have organised an activity at the Crossroads Foundation in Tuen Mun.  Students will participate in one of the “Global X-periences” which is called “The Struggle for Survival with a Slum Lunch”.

Transport will be provided to, and from, the venue.  Students will be accompanied by teachers from Sha Tin College.

Please sign the form below and return it to Ms Lia Ali in room 127 before Wednesday April 26.  The activity will be within the normal school hours so students will be back at Sha Tin College in time for the regular school buses. The cost of the trip will be $50 per student.  Please make the cheque payable to Sha Tin College and write your child’s name and tutor group on the back of the cheque.

Do check the Crossroads website if you are interested in more details or contact me here at school if you require further information.

May  4   7 D1, D2, G1 & G2

May 12   7 P1, P2, X1 & X2

Yours sincerely

Lucy Ogilvie

Head of GTS, PRS, TOK
