At Temple Christian College, a core value of our Christian Education is encouraging students look outside themselves and providing opportunities to experience helping those less fortunate than themselves. One of the many ways we do this is by offering students in Year's 10 and 11 the opportunity to participate in our Mission Trips to Cambodia or Papua New Guinea. The students spend time in schools, orphanages and churches, helping teach and building relationships with the orphans, students and staff in each place.
In its 12th year, this trip takes place at the end of Term 3 and is between 14 to 17 days in length. As well as living in an orphanage and visiting schools and a cambodian church, students visit the Killing Fields, Toul Sleng Genocide Museum and Angkor Wat.
The 2018 Cambodia team was the biggest in our Mission Trip history comprising of 24 students and 6 adults across both the Mile End and Paralowie Temple Christian College Campuses, all of which have returned with many incredible memories.
