We believe that outdoor activities are essential for children’s development and are strongly valued for the positive effects they have on children’s well-being. Outdoor activities not only support children’s brain development but also promotes both physical and mental health among children.
When children engage in outdoor activities, they explore and interact with the outside world. They engage with their environments, contact with external reality and learn through touch. This engages their curiosity and interest to learn more and significantly influences how children learn directives, acquire intellectual ideas and make sense of the world.
At Wheaton International School, we strive to engage our young minds through various outdoor activities including but not limited to, field trips, study tours, outdoor camping, industrial visits, etc., in the hope that students engage themselves and learn from this external stimuli.
