From Grade 2 onward, each grade completes an expedition involving overnight stays. These vary according to the grade level and last from one night to two weeks, depending on the age and grade of the participants. Every student is expected to participate. A similar programme is followed each year. The expeditions offered at both campuses are identical, only the dates differ.
- Grade 2 - Overnight stay at Dairy Farm in Singapore.
- Grade 3 - A lodge in Malaysia's Johor State for two nights away for horse riding and adventure activities
- Grade 4 - Pulau Sibu off the East Coast of Malaysia for three nights away for swimming and snorkeling
- Grade 5 - Taman Negara (Malaysia's national park) for five nights away for adventure activities in the jungle
- Grade 6 - Pulau Tioman, an island off Malaysia for four nights away for adventure and study on the edge of the South China Sea
- Grade 7 - Pulau Sibu for two nights for sea kayaking
- Grade 8 - Chiangmai, Thailand area for 13 nights, including one week adventure (trekking, rafting, cultural study) and one week at the Traidhos to learn about Thai culture, environments, religions and art
- Grades 9 and 10 - Various week-long adventure activities are offered; all students must select one adventure activity.
- FIB - Outward Bound in Sabah or Thailand for seven nights away for a rigorous sailing, camping, walking, social service and global concerns challenge.
- Grades 11 and 12 - Project Week in Grade 11 involves all students planning their own week-long projects which should incorporate budget travel, adventure, cultural research and service.
All activities are well within the capabilities of the students, though they may be challenged to try something new and to overcome initial anxieties. Each adventure requires a level of commitment from the student and offers the chance to succeed in a novel setting. Students enjoy these trips, and are often surprised to find that they possess the determination, adaptability and sense of teamwork to rise to the challenges presented. The result is a more confident child, proud of their efforts.
Our objectives on these expeditions would be impossible to achieve within the classroom setting; the experiential learning aspect of the curriculum is one of the cornerstones of our ethos as a College.
