Forest School

Forest School

Forest School is an inspirational environment that offers our students regular opportunities to develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in outdoor environment. We offer Forest School to our Kindergarten children as part of our regular programme, as we strongly believe that it adds many benefits to our students’ learning and well-being as well as developmental growth.


Forest School provides children with the opportunity to explore and experience the natural world through practical activities which helps promote confidence, self-esteem, independence and resilience.


Outdoor learning develops knowledge and skills in ways that add value to children’s everyday experiences in the classroom and beyond while enjoying a variety of exciting and challenging activities.


Research shows that Forest School has a positive impact on long-term memory and encourages the development of specific academic skills by improving engagement, achievement and a stronger motivation to learn.

Teamwork, intra- and inter-personal skills are also developed through games and group activities such as scavenger hunts. Self-esteem, individual practical and intellectual skills are enhanced through supervised activities like shelter building, tool handling or lighting fires.

Currently, all K1-K3 students participate in regular Fores School sessions. The programme runs in all safe weather conditions. Bus transportation from campus to the Forest School learning sites and back is arranged through the school.

在我們的森林學校,學生們將在動手參與的過程中完成自己的學習任務,這種學習方法將有助於提高學生們的自信心,並使得學生們的自我價值得到更好的體現。我們之所以在幼稚園的常規課程中開設了森林學校這一課程,是因為我們相信,它能在從多個方面助力孩子的學習,諸如:

森林学校为孩子们提供了一個探索和体验大自然的机会,在实践中,孩子们的自信心、自尊心、独立性和對環境的适应能力都將得到顯著的提升;

户外学习可以豐富孩子的知识與技能儲備,而這些收穫將對日常課堂中的知識形成有效的補充;

研究表明,森林学校对孩子的长期记忆將形成积极的影响,同時,通过提高参与度、形成成就感和激發強烈的学习动机,森林學校將有助於孩子未來在一些特定學術領域技能的發展。
