Thirteen students from Damascus College are gearing up to travel to Timor-Leste.

While there, the year 11 students will teach English at their sister school, Santa Maria College in Ainaro, and will also distribute the funds raised through various events over the past 12 months to local organisations.

The trip is 11 days long, and the group of students will fly out with four staff members tomorrow, before returning home on July 1.

It's the ninth trip the school's year 11 students have participated in its Immersion Program, where the group of students travel to experience a different way of live and learn from another culture.
