Beyond the Classroom

Trips and Exchanges

As part of a truly rounded Lathallan education, there are many opportunities for our pupils to take part in trips and exchanges. Travel, the chance to learn new skills and make new friends are all integral to the ethos of our trips and exchange programmes. The programmes are refreshed on an annual basis, with new trips and opportunities being offered every year.

There is a biennial skiing trip to Austria, open to Junior and Senior pupils. This allows pupils from complete novices to advanced level skiers to develop their skills in fun and fully supervised surroundings.

Every year there is an opportunity for S6 pupils to take part in a volunteering trip to South Africa. This involves working on the Asante Sana Game Reserve to take part in conservation and animal management and at the local Vuyani Orphanage to help improve their facilities. This trip has now been running for 7 years and offers pupils a valuable and eye opening experience whilst developing their practical skills.

Younger pupils are not forgotten about, with trips to the Cairngorms and Lakeside happening every year and a trip to London in J7.

There are a number of exchange opportunities for Senior School pupils, including Australia, USA, Canada and Switzerland. Recently pupils swapped Scotland for Maine and had the opportunity to see what life and school was like in the US. This academic year will see pupils on an exchange in Canada and Australia.

There are more exciting trips planned for this academic year including a trip to Barcelona for pupils studying Spanish and a Rugby Tour in Ireland.
