Culture / Field Trips
Visits to museums and places of local interest form a valuable complement to academic life.
For the younger children, these include visits to the Oceanographic Museum in Monaco and the Fernand Léger or Matisse Museums and the Villa Kerylos on the Côte d’Azur.
In the Primary school, field trips normally take place in the spring for a week in the French Alps and in Switzerland for Class 6.
In the Middle School, the field trips are an integral part of our curriculum in trimester 1, and learning is directed towards these trips in all subjects. These trips are mandatory for all Middle School students and gives students a real learning experience outside of the classroom.
This year, Class 7 visited Avignon, Class 8 spent a week in Cortona and Florence, and Class 9 visited Strasburg and the Battlefields of northern France.
New destinations in the Secondary School included a leadership and intensive study course in Oxford while class 11 enjoyed a geographic expedition to Iceland.
Language, art and science trips complement an already rich programme of expeditions: IB students in class 12 will be departing on a Service Trip to Vietnam in the spring.
