"Week without Walls" is an initiative where students engage in learning experiences outside the traditional classroom setting for a week. The aim is to provide students with opportunities for experiential learning, personal growth, and community engagement.

The Grade 10 "Week Without Walls" programme offers students a unique opportunity to step out of their comfort zones and immerse themselves in diverse learning environments.

This week, our Grade 10s are exploring Vienna, Rome and Budapest.

Beyond academic knowledge, the "Week Without Walls" experience is a journey of personal growth and self-discovery for our Grade 10 students. Away from the familiar routines and structures of school life, they are challenged to navigate new environments, overcome obstacles, and collaborate with peers in unfamiliar settings. This fosters resilience, adaptability, and independence, equipping students with essential life skills that extend far beyond their academic pursuits.

Before traveling, the students and teachers defined clear educational objectives for the week as well as determined what skills, knowledge, and experiences students would gain from the program.

At WAT, we prioritise the safety and well-being of students throughout the programme therefore we conducted a thorough risk assessment aligning to the safety protocols and ensuring adequate supervision and emergency preparedness.

During their stay in Budapest, our students had the chance to connect with on of our Orbital Education sister schools - Britannica International School, Budapest - for a bit of friendly competition!

We’re looking forward to hearing the stories and experiences our students have gained from the “Week Without Walls” trips when they come back home.
