World Challenge 2016 - Malysia

During the summer holiday, World Challenge students from Invicta travelled to Malaysia to volunteer at Bubbles Turtle Sanctuary to take part in projects that help to conserve the species.

The girls sent us this report of their time in Malaysia.

“At 4pm on Sunday, 10 July, we arrived at Kuala Lumpur Airport. After standing for half an hour collecting our bags, and coming to the realisation that Joyce's bag was left in Heathrow, we left to travel to our first hostel in KL Central. On the first night, we all shared a dormitory and the majority of us had a good night sleep, refreshing us for our first proper day! On Monday, after an eventful day we travelled for 4 hours to the Cameron Highlands on the best coach we have ever been on, with leg room aplenty! After relaxing in our hostel for an hour, we strolled around looking for somewhere to eat. We eventually enjoyed noodles and rice for the 4th meal in a row! We then went back to our hostel to prepare ourselves for our first trek on Tuesday.  6 hours and 12km later, we were still going, with Bear Grylls (aka Ellie Osborn) jumping her way through the trees! After some brilliant views and a lot of hill climbing in the Malaysian heat, we arrived back at our hostel and got ready for dinner. On Wednesday, we set off for our second trek. This time we were actually climbing on hands and knees through the jungle up the vertical slope! Everyone felt a sense of accomplishment once this trek had been completed and was very proud of themselves. Our highlight of the week so far has got to be white water rafting down a river in the jungle, even if more than seven of us fell out due to the rapids. In true Joyce style, she was the first to take the plunge, falling down rocks and being dragged along in the current until another raft had to grab hold of her and pull her back into the raft!

Later in the week, we travelled 5 hours from the Cameron Highlands to Kuala Besut where we experienced the local driving skills and the bumpy roads! We strolled around the local village, had some dinner and got ready for bed. The following day, we travelled on a boat to the Perenthian Islands to help out at the local turtle conservation. This was an absolutely amazing experience and we learnt so much from it. We had to complete shift work (either 8pm-3am or 3am-8am) for the 4 days we were there. During these shifts we had to complete half hourly night walks along the beach, looking out for turtles coming on to the beach to lay eggs. We then had to collect the eggs. We also had to check the hatchery every hour and were lucky enough to see 100s of baby turtles that we had to release into the sea. This was a fantastic experience and one we will never forget.

Our last few days in Malaysia involved site seeing around Kuala Lumpur. We went up the Personas Towers and saw some brilliant views of Malaysia and then went to local markets where we could spend all our pocket money.

What a fantastic opportunity World Challenge has been and we would highly recommend it to anyone!”

Simon, the Expedition Leader for World Challenge commented on the brilliant leadership and management skills demonstrated from the students.

We would like to thanks Miss Fernandes and Miss Abbot who attended this trip and supervised the girls.

The next World Challenge will take place in India in July.
