Designed to provide the opportunity for Australian school students and their teachers to experience another culture, another way of life and to step beyond the eye of the tourist.
The School Immersion Program is designed to provide the opportunity for Australian school students and their teachers to experience another culture, another way of life and to step beyond the eye of the tourist. It presents to these students both mental and physical challenges that will help them form a balanced foundation and direction in life.
A Matesabroad Cambodian School Immersion will provide the students with an understanding of the richness of the Khmer Culture and the desperate plight of many of the people. The tour is unique in immersing the students into the lives of those less fortunate than them.
Our suggested itinerary incorporates rich cultural and historic experiences such as visits to the Royal Palace, the National Museum, the Temples of Angkor, craft centres, Tuol Sleng Museum and Killing Fields of Choeung Ek. This is balanced with a glimpse into the daily struggle of the ordinary Cambodian with a 4 day immersion with the slum communities and the slum schools including an optional 2 night sleepover, Home for Deaf and Blind Children, Vocational Training School for the Disabled adults, a school for disabled teens, the Floating Village of Tonle Sap Lake and a childrens outreach program in Siem Reap.
