Earlier this year in March 2020, students from San Fernando and Central Valley travelled to Hawaii as part of Learn4Life’s Experiential Learning program.

Students and staff chaperones, along with Pathways in Education, explored and learned about the history and significance of the second world war.

Every Pathways Trip begins with team building in some way. Before leaving for this trip the team spent a Wednesday night of bowling in Los Angeles!
