Week Without Walls

Week Without Walls is an experiential learning programme that takes students out of the classroom and challenges them to apply their knowledge and skills to real life situations.

Every year in the first week of November, regular classes are suspended as all students participate in service activities and outdoor programmes designed to build team spirit and promote positive relationships across grade levels. Grade 6-8 students travel to an ethnic minority village in Ta Lai near the Cat Tien National Park, while older students go to an elephant sanctuary in the River Kwai region of Thailand.

Students live in tents and longhouses during their stay, and are exposed to new experiences, different cultures and the beauty of our natural environment. Students eagerly embrace this opportunity to:

  • Take part in service activities and interact with local communities
  • Discover nature through adventure activities
  • Build trust and cooperation within teams
  • Learn to understand and respect individual strengths and weaknesses
  • Improve self and social awareness of student leaders
  • Test their resourcefulness by effectively managing challenges

The Week Without Walls is an opportunity for students build self confidence both in themselves and in their interpersonal relationships with peers. It is a critical step in their path to becoming global citizens.
