Countdown to RSIS Morocco begins!
Posted: 01 July 2019
Excitement levels are high as our RSIS students around the world count down the days until our projects in Morocco kicks off on the 6th July.
About the project
Students will help construct a building consisting of two rooms where lessons can take place for the women and the children of the village who cannot or have not attended school. Students will also help put a permanent pathway in from the mountain road to Tacheddirt village.
Aside from the project work, students will experience the diverse culture of the Berber people and their way of life, explore the bustling streets and beautiful gardens of Marrakesh and visit the ancient fortified village of Aït Benhaddou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the location of many big-budget Hollywood movies.
About this blog
While students are away, we run an online blog covering the student’s adventures and keeping you up to date with their latest activates and the progress they are making on the project site.
Updates are typically written by the students themselves and contain photos and (sometimes) videos.
The blog will be updated here on the Round Square website every couple of days where possible. Wifi can be very sporadic depending on the team’s location and if they are in transit. There is also usually a little delay between the first update announcing the team’s arrival in country and the second update. This is usually because the team are settling in or are in transit to the project site. A notification is sent to all parents when the blog is updated.
The most exciting part of this blog are the photos and videos. We try and capture photos of all students on the project, but please remember – some students are camera shy!
You can also follow the adventure on social media
See you in Morocco!
We look forward to meeting the student team on arrivals day (6th July). All students will be met at the Arrivals Gate at Marrakesh Menara Airport, Morocco by members of the Round Square Adult Leadership team. The adults will have a Round Square flag and are very easy to spot! Students should not leave the airport un-escorted.
Travel safe everyone and we will see you soon!
