School Trips

Learning takes place everywhere. Your child can take part in educational visits and trips to enhance their school life

Learning takes place everywhere. Your child will have the opportunity to take part in educational visits and trips to enhance their school life and learning experience in a well-planned and safe way.

School trips typically complement the curriculum and are designed to enhance your child’s learning. While some trips are local, others – particularly for older children – may be further afield and involve a residential stay.

Trips conducted by our school include sporting trips such as hiking vacations or outdoor pursuits adventures and educational trips to visit sites of cultural or historical significance, amongst others. At Oakridge International School, Mohali we also offer our parent community to interact and build bonds on international trips with the theme of ‘Mom and me’, where the child and mother are invited to spend time away from work and school.

Regional, National & International Trips

The experience of meeting different people from different background gives your child exposure to cultural awareness, verbal, nonverbal communication skills, independence and most importantly adaptability. They learn to embrace different cultures and explore the uniqueness of others, which prepares the students to face the real world. The trips involve cultural exchange programmes, including STEAM Festival, Model United Nations, UNICEF Summit, Sustainability Meets, University Tours.

We include several educational, adventure-based and STEAM-related trips across the country to engage our students in enriching experiences:

Adventure Trips

Adventure Camps are conducted both onsite and offsite to give a taste of thrill and adventure to the students. These are conducted in safe environments by qualified leaders. The students engage in activities like rappelling, rock-climbing, zorbing, hiking, trekking, team games while also learning outdoor survival skills via trips to places like Himachal, Uttarakhand, etc. They learn to work as a team, demonstrating support, tolerance and encouragement for others. The time away from home encourages confidence and independence, teaching key life skills which includes decision making, leadership, initiative and problem solving. They are encouraged to make the right choice towards healthy lifestyle and active minds.

During this visit, they also learnt about cultural exchange and self-management skills, which are crucial interpersonal skills to lead in this century.
