Rancho Build

It’s a very exciting day because 7 Centennial students on their Global Citizenship and Equity Learning Experience (GCELE) trip are arriving to help build a traditional rancho that will be the new Cultural Centre in Boruca. Here are pictures of all the work in preparation for the construction from this past week. I will post more of the GCELE group as the build progresses.
