Trips and excursions

School outings and trips have a quite specific educational, didactic and social value. They are school activities. They must therefore have a clear connection with the social, pedagogical and/or didactic objectives of teaching and be prepared and followed up in classroom activities.

Guidelines for school outings and trips organized by the nursery and primary departments of the European Schools

The curriculum for nursery and primary cycles attaches great importance to environmental studies and learning by observation and practice. It is with this in mind that educational visits and excursions are organised during the year.

The maximum duration of an outing is one day.
