There’s a whole world out there waiting to be discovered!
Rather than going home for the week-long October break, we strongly encourage all students to join our” European Discovery Week”. With the support and care of Brillantmont staff, students visit a nearby country and enjoy a full activity and discovery programme. In recent years, we have been to the South of France, Barcelona (Spain), Florence and Venice (Italy) and Salzburg and Vienna (Austria). The trips balance cultural and famous sights and free time to discover and get a feel for the place. Students join workshops such as perfume making in Grasse, mask painting in Venice and apple strudel cooking in Vienna. The European Discovery week Is a great way to make new friends and lasting memories.
In the third term, grade level study trips with their teachers give students opportunities to put knowledge into context.
For example, they might discover the glaciers of Iceland, apply their French skills in Brittany, learn how to kite surf on the Mediterranean Sea or step back in time to understand History in the Belgian First World War Battlefields.
