In 2019 a group of 22 students from Islay High School will be embarking on a 28 day trip to Costa Rica and Nicaragua. We are aiming to fundraise around £46,000 to go to half of our costs and we will pay the other half of the costs. To fundraise so far we have done lunches for seniors, a marathon, bagpacks, and we will be doing weddings, triathalons, and sponsored walks.
There has been 8 previous expeditions and they have been extremely successful and have taught people many things and given lots of memories.
