Recreational & educational school trips
School trips are an integral part of school life and an essential element of the learning process. Students’ entertainment, their socialization through the game, as well as the practice of their skills, is their main goal. School trips are divided into 2 categories, educational and recreational. Both types are included in the annual school curriculum to cover teaching as well as pedagogical purposes. These trips bring pupils together with monuments of cultural value but also give children the necessary entertainment. If you are looking for alternative ideas for educational trips, close to the interests of the students, you are in the right place.
