GIS Jungle School: Nurturing Ambassadors for Nature
The GIS Jungle School programme is based on the ‘Forest Schools’ approach, started in Europe. Utilising our unique location in Malaysia and proximity to the jungle here in Kuala Lumpur, we inspire our children to become ‘Ambassadors for Nature’.
Jungle School is an inspirational process that encourages young learners to develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning in the natural environment and is at the centre of our ‘Outside of the Classroom Learning’ programme.
We know that children learn best when they are interested in something and are actively involved, which is why during Jungle School outings, children are encouraged to take the lead in their own learning. Many new skills are learnt through Jungle School such as tree climbing, boat making, leaf threading, stream investigating, stick collecting, mud mixing, spider watching, tree height estimating, team game playing and many more.
GIS Jungle School encourages communication, questioning, social skills, risk taking, problem solving and resilience – all skills closely linked to our EYC curriculum.
At GIS, we bring out the best in everyone, both inside and outside of the classroom through our unique learning culture where we pursue our passions and strive for excellence; all in the spirit of respect, integrity and well being. Speak with us today to start your learning journey with GIS.
