We know that there’s much more to field trips than a fun week away from the classroom. Which is why we spoke to our China & Southeast Asia Operations Manager, Lesley Chen, to find out more about how our school trips to China are particularly tailored to nurture leadership skills in students.
We believe it is important for students to encounter opportunities to develop leadership skills throughout their education. Leadership opportunities allow students to test themselves, build relationships with their peers, define their own identity and grow in confidence.
They also provide opportunities for students to learn how to work in a team and collaboratively with others, learn to solve problems and develop effective language skills to resolve issues. If leadership opportunities are crucial throughout a child’s education, we believe they should be a fundamental part of every educational school trip.
We know that a quality education will provide student, the leaders of tomorrow, with an opportunity for their interests and passions to grow. At The Learning Adventure, we carefully craft the best itineraries to expose students to the new, the creative, and the beautiful, in order to plant seeds of inspiration in every future leader that takes a trip with us.
Our trips are specifically built to maximize the opportunities for our students to shout out their ideas, and encourage them to find ways to make their ideas come to life. Each of our itineraries includes engaging activities such as cooking classes, volunteering at local schools and raft building, through which students really get the chance to work in teams and be in charge of their own projects.
In a country as unique as China, we believe it acts as the perfect destination for a school trip. By introducing students to unfamiliar cultures, lifestyles and situations, the opportunities for leadership development only multiply!
