Bonjour à tous encore. On the 17th of April, in Wellington, I met the rest of the Young Ambassadors, the organisers of our trip and the task in front of us; to be able to tell the story of those who came before during the Great War. It was a great start and despite being the only male on the trip, I felt welcome by all. Being in the company of all the team has made me very excited to commence this journey.
Upon arriving in Wellington, we were given a lot of information that answered many...
Bonjour tout le monde! Saturday the 17th of March began what will become a memorable and incredibly special journey. All Young Ambassadors for 2018 came from far and near to congregate in Wellington and finally meet, starting the ball rolling on the Following Family Footsteps trip.
I am overjoyed to have received the opportunity to be part of the Young Ambassadors group of 2018. When I received the acceptance email I was thankfully home alone, which saved me from a lot of embarrassment since my reaction was very ecstatic!
My name is Shani McMullan, and I am super excited to be part of the Young Ambassador’s group for 2018!
To me, being an ambassador is about relationships. I went on a high school French trip two years ago, and as part of it we visited a school in Nice. It was so interesting to meet young people like us, yet who lived completely different lives. I didn't have too much of a chance to bond with any of the students then, but this time round I’m hoping to make more...
Bonjour à tous, My name is Emma Hartshaw and I am a Year 12 student at Cashmere High School in Christchurch. This year I have the utmost privilege of being a Young Ambassador for the Following Family Footsteps trip for 2018.
