The culmination of months of fund raising and 'spreading the word' has finally arrived. Year 10 student Rebecca and Secondary Assistant Principal, Ms Helen Thew are in Antarctica with Robert Swan and 2041. After a mammoth 26 hours of travelling they arrived in Buenos Aires, before flying down to the southernmost city on the planet, Ushuaia. After a calm crossing of the often tumultuous Drake's Passage aboard the Ocean Endeavour, Helen and Rebecca have finally stepped foot onto Antarctica!
