Conservation practitioner and educator, Ben Palmer-Fry says, “Nature breeds curiosity; it helps to grow explorers rather than robots. It reminds us that we are part of something bigger.” The Alps in Switzerland is just the place for your students to experience this, and with the Viamonde Travel team supporting you on the school trip, you too can grow into an explorer.
Viamonde is an established Swiss company, specialising in providing ski, snowboard, outdoor education, and multi-activity programmes in Switzerland to international schools throughout the world.
International schools understand and appreciate the experience a ski trip can offer their students. Switzerland is the preferred destination, and the Swiss Alps is enjoyed by a large number of students from AISA member schools every year.
Skiing challenges students of all abilities. Even for students who are accomplished skiers, there is always something to learn, and skills can be honed on new pistes. Skiing is an incredibly inclusive activity, which makes it the ideal focus for a school trip.
As the school chaperones are supported throughout the trip by an experienced and motivated team of counsellors, many of the usual responsibilities of a school trip are shared. The result is the opportunity for the chaperones to interact with the students on a level not always possible in the classroom.
The Association of International Schools in Africa is dedicated to serving its members throughout Africa. Please let us know if you require additional or specific information, resources and or support, and we will endeavour to assist you as soon as possible.
