Field trips at ISL include both day and overnight residential trips organized by teachers. Nursery, Preschool and Reception students take part in day trips and are not a part of the overnight, residential field trips listed below. In addition to the regular, annual curriculum-linked residential field trips, are visits to other countries, for example, ski trips to Austria or Italy also occur during vacations.
At ISL, every student from Year 1 to IBDP2 has the opportunity to participate in a residential field trip each year.These “out-of-school” experiences have been a tradition at ISL since the formation of the school. We believe that these activities are vital in order for students to broaden their horizons and develop skills and understanding that are simply not available within the confines of a classroom. School trips are an essential means of promoting collaboration and teamwork, as well as providing an opportunity to explore beautiful parts of this country and others. Field trips are viewed as another critical part of the curriculum and not just an optional extra.
Below are photographs from a number of Field Trips including the Year 10 trip to Wildtracks and the IBDP trip to the Pioneer Camp.
