Students from ILS 6th grade group 6M1 aqquired skills for treks through the Primorye forests with instructors from the company "Traveller". Experienced adults from the Primorye Federation of Sport Tourism taught our students how to make their way through a swamp, explained what they should do if any of them injures a leg and cannot walk, showed them how to use ropes to cross a ravine, and how not to lose their way in a cave.
"Group field trips like this one have become a tradition for us," explains 6M1 home-room teacher Aleksandra Matushina. "These activities help the students come together as a unit. It is important that they already understand the role that teamwork plays in life."
"In our school we devote a great deal of attention to team building," says ILS Principal Olga Shevchenko. "The home-room teachers spend plenty of time with the children to ensure that the class becomes a unified group, and I believe they are successful."
