Students from Honiton Community College have rolled up their sleeves and got to work on community projects in Borneo.

Teenagers from Years 11 and 12 are in Borneo for four weeks and, although they only left England on July 16, have already started an ambitious programme of Camps International projects.

They are building a classroom, planting trees and undertaking other community work.

Each raised £3,500 to fund their trip and, at the end of their stay, will be undertaking a five day trek through jungle before climbing Mount Kinabalu.
