Middle School Field Trips

Field trips are an integral component of the Middle School curriculum as we believe that students learn best when they have first hand experiences and are directly involved in seeing and doing things.

Together with the residential trips outlined below, students participate in other day trips throughout the year. The residential and day field trips are included in tuition fees.

Grade 6 - Mission Week: provides a range of opportunities for building relationships through activities and events that highlight the four pillars of the ZIS Mission (Learn, Care, Challenge, Lead). The week comprises advisory-based activities and challenges, individually chosen activities, and theme-based trips into the natural environment and community.

In May, Grade 6 travel to Italy for five days where they focus on social studies - history and geography.


Grade 7 Mission Week : provides a range of opportunities for building relationships through activities and events that highlight the four pillars of the ZIS Mission (Learn, Care, Challenge, Lead). The week comprises advisory-based activities and challenges, individually chosen activities, and theme-based trips into the natural environment and community.

In May, Grade 7 travel to Spain for five days where they focus on history, culture and architecture.


Grade 8 Mission Week: provides a range of opportunities for building relationships through activities and events that highlight the four pillars of the ZIS Mission (Learn, Care, Challenge, Lead).
