Every three years, Tuakau College offers an overseas trip for their Year 11 to 13 students and this year 64 students will participate in a trip of a lifetime to Italy, France, Germany and Dubai. Thirty-nine adults and staff will accompany the tour, making a combined tour party of 103. The goal is to experience life in another country and to visit sites of significance.
Students have worked very hard fundraising for the trip over the past three years, and now it is about to become a reality with ‘ bon voyage’ on Saturday, 23 September, 2017.
A visit to WWG High School in Bayreuth, Germany is also on the list where students will provide a presentation on New Zealand culture.
Tuakau College would like to thank the Tuakau and wider Franklin community for their ongoing support with fundraising whom without their support the trip would not have been possible.Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
