Primary School Trips

Relevant, engaging and challenging units of inquiry are built around the PYP framework. These units must have local significance and global relevance.


For a unit to have local significance to a young learner, field trips are built into the PYP framework.They give primary sources of information where learners can interrogate through questioning and confirm learning through a hands-on approach.

These day trips encourage learners to think beyond and delve deeper into their big ideas. This transference drives learning forward and provokes parallel inquiries.

Grade 3 (P6) students have an overnight camping experience at School, in order to build their independence and broaden their experiences. They learn to put up a tent, experience a campfire with all its associations and manage themselves within the safe school environment.

The Grade 4 (P7) learners went on a residential journey to Baevu, The Village, located in Kanakapura, Bangalore, for two nights and three days. During this immersive experience, the children delved into practical applications of rainwater harvesting, organic farming, and solar power, gaining valuable insights into sustainable energy practices. The picturesque Baevu Village, renowned as a sustainable Eco Village, provided a natural setting for exploring delicate ecosystems in their native habitats.

Key Focus Areas

Beyond environmental education, the expedition aimed to foster the development of essential life skills among students. Collaboration took center stage, with teamwork activities designed to cultivate unity and teamwork skills. The emphasis on risk-taking encouraged students to engage in challenges, building resilience and fostering a growth mindset.

The programme also promoted open-mindedness, exposing learners to diverse environments and perspectives, and nurturing a deeper understanding of the world around them. Communication skills were honed through participation in activities that enhanced effective interaction.

Overall, the trip to Baevu Village served as a remarkable learning experience, offering students a holistic education that extended beyond the confines of the classroom.

Lastly, the Grade 5 (P8) overnight trip is a provocation for the PYP Exhibition. The exhibition is an opportunity for learners to showcase their understanding of the skills and concepts covered over their eight years of Primary School along with their understanding of the Learner Profile. Teamwork is the focus and the learners are encouraged to build relationships through activities. They also investigate and interrogate possible inquiries they may choose to take on during this time.
