What are the benefits of school trips?

 

Educational school trips around the world

While it is possible to confine teaching and learning to the classroom, there is no substitute for the enhanced learning experience a school trip can offer.

 

Inspire students and enhance their learning experience

 

It is one of the things that school children look forward to most during their school life and the experiences and memories they create are enduring.

 

stimulate learning

 

They are a welcome break in the routine for both students and teachers as they provide variety stimulating learning.

 

organising school trips can be a daunting task

 

Organising a school trip is certainly a daunting prospect for any teacher however they are a very powerful and positive teaching tool that can help enhance the social, personal and emotional development of a student.

 

Why should I organise a school trip?

Social Interaction

Students may think that they know their fellow studentsEducational trips can add new experience and build new relationships

Students may feel they know their classmates and teachers well from the day to day contact of school life but the experience of being outside the classroom over the course of a school trip can add a completely new dimension to their relationships.

 

Educational trips can provide a relaxed learning environment

 

The relaxed nature of learning on a school trip produces an environment that lends itself to generating many spontaneous and shared experiences that can unite students creating new friendships.

 

Improve student relationship as they share memories and experience

 

Students who once had nothing in common with each other now have something they can share and relate to which can only help with learning back in the classroom.

 

Personal Development and Confidence

 

Allow your students to grow their confidence

Self-confidence and self-esteem are two very important features that a teacher will always look to develop in their students through their teaching. Whilst some students can be very assured of themselves others need that little bit of help which a school trip can help develop.

 

Enable students to be more confident and build their self-esteem

 

Students who do not normally shine in the classroom have the opportunity of being part of a group where there interpersonal skills can flourish improving their self-confidence and self-esteem.

 

Educational school trips can improve your students progress

 

This again can only help to improve performance and relationships back at school making students more resilient to the challenges that lie ahead of them.

 

Emotional Connection

 

A fun and educational experience for your students

 

School trips also have an emotional connection with many fond and enduring memories being created over the course of a school trip. While their purpose is essentially to educate, school trips can also be a fun bonding experience for everyone involved because it’s not school as they know it.

 

Inspire your students as you visit new places and explore new cultures

 

Exposure to new places, people and cultures will enthuse and motivate students making their studies and learning memorable.

 

Allow your students to reach their potential and exceed their targets

 

The memories created will add value to each individual’s academic and personal development contributing to the acquisition of knowledge and the development of skills ultimately giving rise to better grades.
