Bringing the real world into school
The school organises
regular educational field trips in line with the content of the teaching
programme. There are visits to places of interest that complement the units of
inquiry throughout the year.
Teaching and learning at the school empowers and encourages students to learn and understand the real world, to become lifelong learners, to be responsible towards themselves, other people and the environment, and to take appropriate actions. Through the field trips programme we bring the real world into school and we expand the school into the lived environment.
While away on such trips, students are expected to observe the highest standards of conduct and to wear the school uniform.
Parents are required to sign a specific
permission slip allowing their child to leave the school campus, on foot,
to participate in neighbourhood activities or projects, relevant to a
particular topic being studied, as well as day trips in the region using
public transportation or school buses.
Parents are informed in advance of all day trips planned. No further response will be needed unless the parent wishes to withhold permission for the specified activity. Students cannot participate in field trips unless they have the written permission of their parent. Since the written parental permission is a legal requirement, we ask for your co-operation in ensuring that the signed slips are returned promptly.
