Week Without Walls: 18-22 September 2017

One of the ways in which AISR promotes learning outside the classroom is through 'Week Without Walls'. All middle and high school students participate in Week Without Walls. This year, students in middle school will be sailing The IJsselmeer at Monnickendam, and students in grades 9 and 10 will travel to Hamburg. Grades 11 ad 12 will take part in an IB induction week at AISR. The program for the week is designed so that students learn about and embrace the AISR core values in an environment outside of the classroom, while bonding with peers and making connections to certain aspects of the curriculum. The Monday of this week is dedicated to the preparation for this trip and the Friday is destined for reflection on the experiences during the three days off-campus.

Week Without Walls is part of the school curriculum, and all school rules apply. Students and staff are considered ambassadors of the school while they are on these trips. They should be seen as pleasant and cooperative guests at all locations. Students receive a program and packing list. The school covers all costs for accommodation, transportation, and excursions. For some trips, the students are asked to take care of their own lunches and dinners.

In April or May 2018, grade 7 students also take part in a language exchange program in Friesland to experience the local culture and interact with students from Het Marnix College from Ede, a Dutch secondary school.

We are looking forward to these trips that will offer unique experiences and provide a source for learning for the rest of the school year.

Thank you,
