Eating Sago worms, seeing proboscis monkeys, working in a rice paddy, and hearing detailed stories about head hunters were some of the tastes, sights, and sounds the grade 11 students and advisors experienced on their Week Without Walls trip to Sabah, Malaysia. We hiked down to a beautiful waterfall in the jungle, stayed at a rustic jungle camp, built traps and campfires, and fished for our lunch. A major highlight was being graciously hosted by families from the Koposizan community. We were immersed in the tribal customs and culture of the Kadazan and Murat tribes of Borneo, and every day there were new adventures. To wrap up our stay, the Koposizan community performed traditional dances from the Kadazan tribe in which we all participated, ending our trip with high spirits.
