Schools all around Australia are forever looking to improve their performances and ratings. While there are obvious ways such as finding and employing the best teachers, offering modern facilities, and having a strict code of discipline and pride, there is another alternative.

It’s no secret that people of all ages learn and remember more while they are having fun, especially if away from their everyday domain. And this is exactly where a travel training curriculum can be of great benefit to schools and their pupils.

Sitting in a classroom day after day can become very monotonous, especially with the distractions that can occur through interruptions, or when students turn off because they’re tired or bored. Imagine taking the same students to an interesting location away from home for a week or more and teaching them things that are more likely to be interesting as they are relevant to their location which has already caught their imagination.

Through a bespoke tour organized by a company with vast experience in transporting students to many countries around the globe, the youths will benefit as some normally mundane subjects are brought to life by using practical lessons or by visiting an attraction of local interest which coincides with what they are being taught.

Suddenly, those lacking in aptitude in a certain direction will feel energized and understand what they’re being shown because they can see it and feel it. Learning while travelling will build excitement and energy, among the group as a whole and in individuals.

Valuable life skills are also picked up and friendships made as away from home students realise that there are some classmates whom they have lots in common with but had never spent any time together. Camaraderie is built as each evening, there’s time for group games and activities as the barriers come down. Confidence is built, and skills that are valuable in later life are picked up, such as understanding and looking after the needs of others.

There are also lasting benefits, as the students who suddenly have an increased interest and knowledge in a subject, will continue to develop on their return, meaning higher exam marks so the reputation of the school is further enhanced.

A school travel curriculum is a wonderful way to allow students to develop and learn about other places and to appreciate the needs of others. It’s the perfect way for the school to improve its ratings.
