Learning by Travel

Phili

 

Our Learning by Travel trip allows our students to explore new countries and cultures. An ancient Chinese saying states “traveling ten thousand miles is equivalent to reading ten thousand books”.

We get a chance to see and discover the historical and educational aspects of a country while we understand more about its geography and people.
