You know how important time in school is for your students, but have you ever considered how you can make an even greater impact beyond the school walls?
Providing your students with varied learning environments away from school can be the key to reaching disengaged learners, re-motivating your students and breaking down the barriers to help even your most introverted students find a voice amongst their peers. Travelbound’s educational experiences abroad provide the platform to do just that and more.
Travel abroad and there will be a million and one things you can do, which immediately and directly impacts upon students’ development positively. The journey itself is an education with new sights and smells alone acting as a gateway into different cultures, languages and traditions. What is the beauty of providing an experience like this? It doesn’t have to involve jetlag, nor does it have to break the bank.
Walk along the battle-scarred beaches of Normandy and suddenly students feel transported back in time to the battles faced by soldiers and local communities. See the lights of Broadway at night and your school group may suddenly think they’re stepping into a different world in New York. Both experiences do more for the student than reinforce the lessons from D-Day or igniting a passion for performing arts as they begin to contextualise learning and be inspired to embark on a journey of lifelong learning extending far beyond their locality.
Travelbound’s Château du Molay in Normandy enable schools to build a comprehensive programme with the support of on-site teams. The facilities allow for students to develop interpersonal skills, take on lessons on independence, whilst also increasing their awareness of living cooperatively with their peers. There are also opportunities for students to utilise their language skills in both English-speaking and foreign language situations reinforcing purposeful learning and self-confidence in their ability.
