LATEST NEWS

Four Highlands students, Thomas Quille and Lydia James from Year 11, Ellie Way from Year 10 and Olivia Nice from Year 9 will be heading to Japan at the end of term as part of the group of 27 North London Scouts attending the 23rd World Scout Jamboree in Japan. The four were picked from nearly 200 applicants for the 27 places, and were chosen for their initiative, teamwork, communication and leadership skills. The four Scouts all come from different Scout Groups, and have spent the last eighteen months fundraising as the Scouts from the developed world have to support those from less developed economies who otherwise would not be able to attend. The training for the event included learning about Japanese etiquette, language and culture as well as team building and even pitching tents in a Hot Yoga studio to prepare for temperature that can reach 40C on the campsite. Highlands is the only North London school with such a high number of students at the event.

The World Scout Jamboree happens every four years Over 30,000 Scouts from across the world will attend the event, a 10 day camp in southern Japan which features water sports, activities, cultural exchanges and music performances. Whilst there, they will take part in a youth festival to mark the 70th anniversary of the Hiroshima bomb, attending the Peace Park in Hiroshima. The Scouts will also stay in the homes of Japanese Scouts for a couple of nights, and end their stay with a visit to Tokyo.  Four are proud to be representing Enfield and Highlands in Japan.

Ellie Way said that being able to learn some Japanese in her Xbox sessions at Highlands had helped her with her training and she was looking forward to the adventure of a lifetime.
