Not all learning takes place in our classrooms. Classroom learning experiences are enhanced by numerous field trips which serve as extensions to the curriculum. The KIS field trips integrate academic and social development by providing students with an opportunity to investigate and apply academic knowledge to the outside world as well as develop their personal and social skills, through a broad range of activities.
Our field trips are for students of all ages and support the units of inquiry in the PYP or may focus on a particular subject or area of interaction in the MYP or Diploma Programme.
Our residential trips programme provides students in Grade 3 and up (ages 8+) an opportunity to take part in activities outside of Bangkok including places such as Pranburi, Kanchanaburi, Chiang Mai, Khao Yai, and Phuket and outside of Thailand for Grade 10 and up. These trips bring the academic curriculum to life and focus on community service, the arts and environmental issues as well as developing team building and interpersonal skills.
All KIS outings are well-planned and involve extensive preparation and follow-up in order to ensure the students’ safety and to provide the best learning experience. Parents are advised of trips ahead of time and are invited to attend orientation meetings prior to the events.
