While our expedition programme starts in Grade 1 with a sleepover at school and culminates in Grade 11 with the independently planned Project Week, from the first week of kindergarten, regular opportunities are intentionally provided for students to explore the natural, growing, creative and social spaces of the outdoor environments on both campuses. On-campus activity is then extended through a range of field trips that encourage students to form connections in meaningful contexts within the wider Singapore landscape. Eventually, this extends to also include participation in the expedition programme.

Our expedition programme operates from an ethos of 'Challenge of Choice.' This principle refers to each participant's responsibility to choose their own level of risk-taking in the learning experience. Based on the belief that significant learning occurs when you push out of a known 'comfort zone,' our team also recognise that each person's experience will be different.

This encourages respect for one another, the skill of making one's own choices free of peer group pressure and promotes an experience where everyone contributes to each other's choices and self-esteem development.
