Excursions and School Trips

“It is better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times.”

School excursions are an important and effective means of motivating students and engaging them in active learning experiences. Excursions are planned as part of the educational programme each year. The field trips and excursions provide rich educational experiences beyond the classroom learning and help to instil in students, an appreciation of the natural environment of the area being visited. Students are provided with opportunities for social interaction and gain experience in living and cooperating in a group.
