As an international school in Paris, it is important to us to give our students the opportunity to explore Paris, France and other countries. As such, we organize three different kinds of trips for our students.
As an international school we welcome many new students to our international school in Paris in September. In order to help them transition into the school and better integrate, Once a year our students from Grade 1 to DP 2 on school trips. This trip allows students the time to bond with their classmates and teachers while exploring a region they may not otherwise get to visit. They spend the week doing sport and cultural activities and making new friends. Past destinations have included the Normandy D-Day beaches, lake Annecy, or the port city of Saint Malo.
- Nursery/ Prek - go for day trips
- Kindergarten - go for two days trip
- Grade 1 and Grade 2 - go for a three days trip
- Grade 3 - Grade 10 - go for a five days trip
- Grade 11 - go for a five day DP orientation trip
Our Kindergarten school's students may also participate in an optional 3-day farm trip at the end of the school year.
Our Grade 1 and 2 went on an amazing three-day School trip. On the first day, they went to a beach called Stella Plage where the children enjoyed collecting seashells and exploring the dunes. They spent Thursday morning at the centre Equestre de Touquet Paris-Plage. They brushed and saddled the ponies and then got to ride them! Thursday afternoon our students visited an apple orchard and learned about the life cycle of an apple and then were able to pick our own apples. children tasted two varieties to decide which one they liked the most. Thursday evening there was a 'boum' dance party with all of the children in primary.
The children really enjoyed living together for the three days and it was a great way for all of us to get to know each other and learn outside of the classroom.
Our Grades 9, 10, and 11 went for their school trip to St Malo. The trip was filled with exciting outdoor activities like cycling, rock climbing, orienteering, hiking, swimming, etc.
Residential trips like this, where students can experience and learn more about the world around them outside of the classroom, are an integral part of an IB education. We are overjoyed that we are moving towards a post-pandemic world and that student life is slowly getting back to normal.
INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL TRIPS
As part of the Globeducate network of schools, our students have many opportunities to participate in Globeducate events at our international sister schools in Europe. Every year, we send students to the music festival, academic olympics, olympic games and model UN conference. Past destinations have included Spain, Italy and Portugal. Students on these trips typically enjoy added cultural exposure by staying with host families.
Additionally, those international high school students active in Model UN typically attend one conference in Europe and one further abroad. In past years we have sent students to Philadelphia, Boston, Cambridge, Beijing, New York, Prague and Tangiers.
Globeducate Leadership Summit 2022
The bespoke, annual Globeducate student leadership summit for students took place over three days, 4th-6th October, at Stonar School, England, and challenged the thinking and leadership styles of more than 40 students.
