All study at our International School is based on real-world concepts. The experience goes beyond reading about a concept; students are able to see it, manipulate it or participate in it physically. To encourage young children’s inquiry through observation, experimentation, questioning and reiteration through
proof-of-concepts; one-day field trips are an essential part of the learning for students in the Primary School.
Teachers use this opportunity to help children demonstrate their trans-disciplinary understanding.
Parents are also encouraged to participate in field trips as volunteers. For students in the higher grades, field trips are an opportunity to experience and demonstrate the inter-connectedness of their learning at school. These may be one-day or overnight trips and are an essential component of the curriculum at AAIS. Often, field trips are also an opportunity for our students in the CIE and IB DP Programme to engage in Creativity, Action, Service.(CAS)
