Beijing BISS International School values the importance of inquiry and field-based learning. One of the highlights of the year is BISS on the Road, an annual week of activities completely unique to BISS during which the classroom experience is taken out into the real world in order for students to actively engage with their community, make connections, reflect deeply on their chosen themes, and have fun at the same time. This year, BISS on the Road was another huge success both in the Elementary and Secondary Schools.

PreK-G1 students developed attitudes of curiosity, care, and cooperation as they made excursions into the local communities (“Friends Work Together”). G2 explored “Community & Chinese Culture” in their visits to Chinese temples, museums, cultural parks, as well as through their lessons in Kung Fu and traditional Chinese Art. G3 and G4 combined forces to experience “Challenge & Teamwork” during a two-night camp including hiking, cooking for themselves and numerous team-building activities up at the Great Wall. G5 students focused on “Leadership & Service” during their two-night stay at the Goose and Duck Ranch. To finish the week, Grade 5 demonstrated their leadership skills in a fun-filled afternoon of student-led games for the entire Elementary School.

In the Secondary School, G6 also experienced local Chinese culture, while G7 tested their teamwork skills at Survival Island. G8 and G9 went on cultural excursions to the Miyun Mountains and Chengde, respectively, while G10 developed lessons for students at an Elementary School in Dongpo Village, near the Jinshanling Great Wall. G11 spearheaded renovations of local school facilities and taught young children at Gufupu, while G12 traveled to Pingyao for their “Leadership and Team” building activities that will aid their Creativity, Action and Service projects for their final year in the Diploma Programme.
