Students Return to Mexico, Work on Sustainable Farm

During the seven-day trip, a group of 22 high school students and their chaperones explored historic Mexico while living with and working alongside local families.

Twenty-two high school students and three chaperones traveled to Mexico in mid-January for a weeklong service learning trip. Starting in Mexico City and then moving southeast to Cholula, the coed group immersed themselves in Mexican culture, learning about the people, language and traditions, and even working on a sustainable farm while living in homestays with local families.

Convent & Stuart Hall students first journeyed through Mexico with a similar itinerary in 2013 and have returned most years since. Coordinated by Ray O’Connor, Religion, Theology and Spirituality faculty, the trip includes a visit to Colegio Sagrado Corazón, one of six Sacred Heart schools in the country. Every two years, students from Duchesne Academy, our sister school in Omaha, Nebraska, participate in the trip.
