School Trips

School trips are one of the many events school children look forward to during their school life and the experiences and memories are extremely durable. A school trip with its natural dynamic environment provides a learning venue that matches their natural inclination to know more about things, they also help to engage in those with short attention spans and puts the learning subject in context.

Educational research highlights many of the advantages of trips and the opportunities these bring.

Benefits of Participating in Trips


Engagement
Teachers turn trips into mobile classrooms, instructing students to collect data, then quizzing them or assigning a project based on what they learned during the outing.

Retention
The type of memories that Educational trips create, called “episodic memories,” helps children retain information for longer periods.

Curiosity
Students who go on Educational trips find that they want to learn more about the subjects on which the trip focused.

Reinforcement
The trip can reinforce what a teacher has been instructing in class about a subject and help students understand the topic better.

Socialisation
Taking students into a new environment gives them the experience of traveling in a group and teaches them to be respectful of the locations they visit.

Exposure
Kids get to visit a place to which they have never been before. This can be particularly advantageous to students who are less fortunate and don't have the opportunity to travel.
