Field Trips

The school believes in the value of experiential learning brought about by real life experiences and encounters. It is for this reason that the school's curriculum entails regular field trips that will bring students to places outside the school where they gather information related to their unit of inquiry. All students are expected to join and participate in these trips. In addition, school wide trips are also conducted every year fo further enhance classroom learning. This allows students to further widen their learning experience and apply it in a context which is relevant to them.
