Experiential Learning

Field trips and day excursions provide experiential activities for students that enable them to better appreciate what they have learnt through the curriculum. The hands-on discovery and application of knowledge not only help them to understand the world in which we live, but also are important elements in building character and forging relationships. These activities create links between the classroom and the external world and provide opportunities to generate questions that underlie our daily perspectives.
