CYSP International Trips
Trips allow students to explore places that they may never have had the opportunity to visit. These visits also allow the students to see life beyond their own neighborhoods and towns.
Educational trips contribute to better student outcomes in school and beyond. The study found that, educational trips had a positive, lasting impact on their education and career because the trips made them more engaged, intellectually curious and interested in and out of school.
CYSP Cultural Exposure
With the world becoming a smaller place to live due to rapid progress and growth of globalization, Cultural Exposure activities are one of our guiding principles in exposing students to new cultures. The main reason behind this is to ensure that our students learn how to function as global citizens.
In Cultural Exposure, individuals from different cultures, religions and ethics can work together, respect each other, become familiar with each other’s traditions, regardless of whether s/he is a minority or not. Cultural Exposure activities provide some fundamental principles to the students to overcome problems in these situations.
Concept School CYSP Department also organizes international trips. These international trips may be the part of the CYSP Trips and Cultural Exposures.
Why international trips?
On school international trips, students get exposed to different cultures, traditions, food, languages and ways to see the world, encouraging understanding, appreciation for other nationalities and diversity. This is without a doubt one of the most important benefits of school international trips for all students.
