Our new school year started with Outward Bound team-building activities for our Grade 6 to 12 students. Some grade levels went climbing and hiking in Saxon Switzerland and others built soapbox vehicles together as a team. It was fun to watch the fancy mini cars tested for their driving ability. Our Class of 2023 paddled in self-made rafts on the Elbe from Pirna to Dresden. By exposing our students to these team-building and bonding activities, they learn how to successfully implement a project together with others. These days are also a lovely way for the teachers to get to know their students in a context outside of the classroom, for new students to meet everyone in the grade level and for all students to re-acquaint themselves with their peers. Dresden and the surrounding area make a wonderful classroom and the learning that takes place on these days is just as important as everything that is happening inside the school gates.
The best way to find out more about DIS and student life is by experiencing it for yourself. Find out more about our upcoming opportunities, and engage with us on social media:
