Our Outdoor Education Program offers a progressive age-appropriate experience that begins at Prep and continues to Year 10, with each year building on the skills acquired and challenges faced in the previous years.
Prior to the official program commencing in Prep, our Early Years students build their connections and appreciation of the natural environment as they explore and investigate nature in the surrounding parks and woodlands around school. Learning opportunities are endless as the students participate in enriching cross-curricular activities.
From a unique and enriching nature walk at Sungei Buloh Wetlands with Prep to trekking the beautiful mountains in Chiang Mai with the Year 10, AIS aims to develop the “Whole Student” by nurturing their individual talents, both in and outside the classroom; helping them to discover their unique pathway in life.
