Welcome to Johnstone High's Challenge Nepal Web Site
This is the website of Team Nepal - the student's of Johnstone High School who will be embarking on a life-defining trip to Nepal for 3 weeks commencing the last week of June 2013, under the World Challenge banner. In the meantime, the team will be working hard to raise the considerable funds required to finance the trip. Details of the fundraising initiatives that will be taking place can be found in the pages of this site.
Between now and June 2013 the team will be planning the itinerary for the trip which will involve a trekking phase, a project (perhaps in a local school or an orphanage) and a small time to recharge batteries before returning home.
What happens each day on expedition will be dictated by the team - they set the itinerary, they plan and manage each day, they hold the budget and they make the mistakes - or not.
