Week Without Walls

‘Going Beyond Personal Limits’

VISION

During Week Without Walls we Educate to Make a Difference by learning through a range of meaningful and practical experiences outside the classroom.

RATIONALE

To challenge the students to go beyond what they think they can do.

Taking learning beyond the classroom walls expands learners’ understanding of the curriculum and its possible applications as well as contributing to their individual development. The trips create learning experiences that encourage each student to exceed their potential.

Key Stage 2 Week Without Walls is one of the building blocks that assist in creating success in a child’s academic life and beyond. It continues to offer the opportunity to develop an individual’s physical, social and emotional wellbeing, a healthy and positive disposition, connectedness with others, and self-awareness. Every trip will provide the opportunity for personal development, to learn and contribute to others’ learning and for adventure.
