Outdoor Education Program

Students in Pre-Primary to Grade 2 participate in our outdoor education program where students go on one to two excursions each semester. These half-day excursions include visits to local ecological parks, beaches, and mountain trails where students learn a deeper appreciation for nature as well as participate in a variety of planned activities such as science scavenger hunts, wildlife/nature cataloging and interactive games. This program not only challenges children outside of the classroom but develops the foundational skills for the Outdoor Education Camps.

Outdoor Education Camps

All students in grades 3-10 participate in outdoor education camps organized by the school. The aim of these 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-day outdoor camps is to provide a model of holistic, field-based learning in the effort to develop leaders who are ecologically literate, compassionate, and engaged global citizens. Research shows that well designed, field-based experiences can produce learning which transfers from the field to students’ home environments. Through immersive and interesting field study experiences, students develop leadership traits, compassion for others and communication skills useful in today’s world.

The current range of locations for grade level trips have students in grades 3-8 staying in the Hong Kong area and students in grades 9 and above traveling elsewhere in Southeast Asia.
