Grauer School students travel to Australia

Students from Grauer School in Encinitas traveled to Melbourne, Australia, in December to attend the 2009 Parliament of the World’s Religions, the world’s largest interreligious gathering, which convenes every five years.

The Grauer School was the only high school delegation in attendance, which consisted of 14 students, three teachers and three parent chaperones.

“The most extraordinary aspect of this expedition was the impact it had on the students embracing the world — the kids really opened up and made many new connections,” said teacher Bill Harman, who teaches world religion at the Grauer School and led the trip.

Between their lessons and attending Parliament sessions, the group participated in a bike tour of the city, a mountain top steam engine train trip, “coffee house nights” where they made new friends from other cultures and a visit to the Aboriginal Cultural Center.
