The ISL Qatar Community strongly believes experiential learning enables our students to develop knowledge, skills and values that are not typically learned within the four walls of the traditional classroom setting.
Experiential learning contains the following elements:
- Reflection and critical thinking
- Decision-making and taking responsibility
- Engaging intellectually, creatively, emotionally, socially and physically
- Learning from natural consequences, mistakes and successes
I hear and I forget
I see and I remember
I do and I understand
With this in mind, Week Without Walls is designed to contain a wide range of opportunities that provide all of our students from Grade 6 to Grade 11 with access to a more progressive form of learning.
From 7 May to 11 May 2023, groups of ISL Qatar students embarked on various journeys that enhanced their understanding about cultures, collaboration, languages, sustainability and service.
The Week Without Walls is always subject to the approval from the ministry.
The Week Without Walls 2024 is tentatively planned for 11-15 February.
