Sailing – Pacific

This family planned to take a year to go sailing during which their daughters would be home-schooled aboard the yacht in preparation for entrance exams for the top London private girls schools.
A teaching couple was appointed to make sure that all the subjects could be covered for all three girls in a way that complemented the learning environment without compromising education rigour. All three girls were accepted to their first choice schools.

We have done some amazing activities - a lot of which the adults decide to come on too! - horse riding along a beach; visiting an active volcano; hiking through jungles; climbing up waterfalls and visiting traditional villages to witness spirit dances and land-jumping etc. We were also really lucky to be on a deserted beach in New Caledonia when several sea snakes slithered ashore to lay their eggs! Pretty unique and the children loved it! J - The Tutor
This was just one of the many accounts of the wonderful experiential and hands on learning that travel and education can offer.
