Life at KIS | School Trips

Primary Camps
School trips are an important and compulsory part of our curriculum and each trip has been considered in depth as to how the experience will enrich and broaden the minds of our students. We strive to improve not only your child’s academic skills, but to also instill whole person development. We have included a variety of outdoor team building activities encompassing environmental conservation and community service to help students gain independence, self- confidence and a wider perspective regarding the world around them.

We work hard to develop programs that offer strong experiential learning opportunities as well as offering value for money for Parents. This year the Primary Camps are held during October and November we need to move quickly to ensure that your child can be enrolled and registered well ahead of time.

Our Primary trips are organised in conjunction with Dragonfly and Treasure Island, two local outdoor education companies in which the school has had a long and successful association. They have excellent safety records and you can learn more information about them via their websites here:

For all of our external overseas trips in the Secondary School we partner with educational travel and tour companies that have a proven track record in delivering: challenging, fun, effective and most importantly safe outdoor programmes for our students. Each of these trips has a clear purpose, often linked with Community Service with students developing a greater understanding of the issues and challenges faced within our region. You can learn more about these providers online via the company websites listed on the Student Preference Form which your child will bring home.

Secondary Local Class Trips
Throughout the year subject and interest specific trips are developed and offered for our students. These are based in Hong Kong and have strong curriculum links to what is being currently studied within the subject area.

Within creative areas like drama and the arts, students can attend concerts, theatre performances and art exhibitions. Recent trips within the Science department have involved KIS students visiting Hong Kong University, and the Science Museum. Business Studies students have visited local entrepreneurs to learn about their experiences and develop their understanding of real live business and enterprise activities.

Secondary teachers are always looking to enhance student learning through participation in these valuable and purposeful activities.
