School Trips And Excursions

The purpose of School Educational Trips is essentially to educate, but also to facilitate a fun bonding experience for everyone involved.

The reasons as to why Foresight Academy undertakes school trips are;

It is an excellent method of teaching students to observe, ask questions, and learn in the large classroom.

School educational trips make students aware of learning activities in everyday life.

School trips are to enhance the curriculum as a teaching method. They put some variety into otherwise regimented lesson plans. Instead of spending every day in the classroom, students get to learn in a new environment.

The transportation to and from is often a pleasant open-social time. Building and enhancing the social skills of amongst students and with the teachers.

Students have the opportunity to see new things and learn about them in a more unstructured way. It erases classroom boredom; school trips are about enjoyment, excitement and fun in learning, without the pressure of being in a class.

School trips can give students exposure to places they might not otherwise visit.

Students will experience a more holistic, integrated picture and visual literacy of the information that, in the classroom, may have only been presented in a textual and abstract way.

School trips create, “episodic memories,” which helps children retain information for longer periods.

School trips offer different cultural experiences and allow children to open their eyes to new environments and new cultures. It positively shapes their perspective and triggers ideas and solutions that may not stem from their natural everyday behaviour and habits.
