More than a Classroom

Being a part of the International Baccalaureate community has heightened our interest in developing partnerships to enrich the curriculum and provide motivating student learning experiences.

Residential Trips

From grade 3 to grade 12, carefully chose residential trips, either in Italy or to international locations, are offered annually. The itinerary for all trips is carefully chosen to ensure an educational but enjoyable experience for the students and the security of students is always uppermost in our minds.

Highlights from Grade 7's residential trip to Cilento

On Monday 14 May, Grade 7 accompanied by Mr. Scoppola, Ms. Reese, Mr. McNeill-Martinez and Ms. Pereira, departed for their residential trip to Cilento, a beautiful area that has a rich history and diverse landscape. This trip served to enrich student learning on topics relevant to History and Geography. In particular, visits to Parco archeologico di Paestum and Velia were real treats for our students.

Highlights from Grade 4's residential trip to Capalbio

This week our Grade 4 children went to Capalbio for their residential trip. There were a great deal of excursions and adventures over the course of the three days and I am so proud of all the students. Their enthusiasm and love for learning was an important aspect of what made this trip so successful.


Excursions and visits to places of interest, such as exhibitions and museums, are carefully planned and extend the knowledge, skills and understanding gained in the classroom. These activities are one way of connecting with the local community, helping students to see the relation between what is being learned in the classroom and real-life.

The students borrowed books for their class libraries, discovered the work of Korean writers, and participated in a workshop with the talented illustrator Simone Rea and learned a painting technique that he uses in his artwork.
