Humanities trips: History – Geography – Arts

E-mail Print PDF

Humanity & cultural tourism

  • Developing a better appreciation of the Humanities by exposing students/participants to the local cultures and ways of life.
  • Providing a platform for students/participants to apply the knowledge acquired in Humanities lessons to real life settings: for example, collaborative teamwork & inter cultural discovery through school visits & various hands on workshops (pottery / music / cooking etc…).
  • Heightening students/participants’ interest and awareness in local / regional geography, history, cultures and economies.
  • Fostering sense of ‘esprit de corps’ and character building among students/participants while applying Habits of Mind qualities such as “Applying Past Knowledge to Present Situations” and “Gathering Data through All Senses” and “Listening with Empathy and Understanding.”

Empowerment workshops

OIA will integrate the school objective as part of our Youth Empowerment Workshop (SUM’IT). A 2hr workshop session will be conducted before departure after briefing the students/participants.

Learning & Travel Logbook

A Logbook will be designed and made available (soft copy) to the school so that students/participants can apply practically the aspect of the empowerment workshop during the journey, thus a way of recording the thoughts by writing their feedbacks/feelings on it & bringing back a lifetime memory.
