Damascus College Ballarat Timor Leste Immersion Program

Damascus College Ballarat invites Year 10 students from its cohort to apply to join an immersion team to visit our sister school Santa Maria, Ainaro, in the following year. The group and teachers are consolidated by September of the year before they travel. The students finance their own place on the immersion. Our sister school names a specific project that needs support. The immersion team, as they are then known, undertakes fundraising activities and community and cultural awareness strategies in the nine months leading up to the immersion period. The fundraising result is moved to accounts in Timor Leste associated with the immersion in the weeks leading up to the trip.
