Photos of the Week 11/22

Topics: Photos of the Week
Our students have gone from strangers to best friends, making it hard to say goodbye for winter break now that Trimester 1 is coming to a close. But our students have made the most of their last week in Costa Rica: spending time together, learning new skills, eating delicious food, and so much more.

We’re very sad to say that Trimester 1 is just about over! Tomorrow, November 23rd, our students will travel back to their homes for winter break to recharge for the next two trimesters. Students who came in as strangers are now family, and it’ll be hard to say goodbye for the next few weeks. But they’ve certainly had an incredible time in Costa Rica and Panama for the past few months, and it won’t be long until they’re reuniting to jet off to Asia!

Take a look at the last photos from Trimester 1 and try not to miss us too much while our students are at home. Don’t worry: you can always look back at our past Photos of the Week to get your fix, and we might even have a special Trimester 1 recap blog coming up soon…
