Day Trips and Workshop Visits
Throughout their time at Shrewsbury, every student will be given regular opportunities to take part in day trips and field trips outside of the school. These trips not only provide memorable experiences for our students, but also give access to the wider range of resources, expertise and creative stimuli that are available around Bangkok, allowing students to build on what they have learned in class. Most year groups will take part in at least three trips per year as part of their topic learning.
In addition, we also arrange regular visits to school from workshop providers, presenters and visiting experts.
Year Group Residential Trips
Residential Trips form an integral part of both the academic and pastoral programmes for students in Year 4 upwards. The trips take students to various cultural landmarks and national parks around Thailand:
- Year 4 - Ayutthaya
- Year 5 - Khao Yai
- Year 6 - Kanchanaburi
Through shared experiences outside of the classroom, students’ values and attitudes are challenged and shaped.
On these trips our students form friendships that last throughout school and contribute to the positive, caring and dynamic environment in which our students flourish.
Each trip has a different core focus, designed to enhance the academic curriculum and provide opportunities for personal and social development. The trips include opportunities to participate in activities which are not available in school. The activities are carefully designed and planned, and take advantage of the local facilities and environment, allowing children to develop independence, self-confidence, esteem and discipline. They learn to lead and to work as part of a team as they develop resilience, initiative and problem solving skills. Presentations and performances during the evening session develop students’ communication skills.
