At Dili International School we recognise the value of first-hand experience gained by students while visiting locations outside of the classroom. As a apart of their units of inquiry and programmes of student students regularly go out on excursions locally. Teachers are always looking for creative and meaningful ways to help students apply what they are learning to real life examples and situations in the community.
In the upper primary grades and secondary, students visit the local districts on school camps. We believe camps are important part of students educational programme at DIS and provides opportunities to develop and enrich teamwork and leadership skills while enriching their educational experience.
Our camps also provide students with the opportunity to connect with local communities. This year students have visited Likisa, Maubisse and Atauro to learn more about these communities by meeting with people, speaking to them and sharing stories and opinions, by working alongside students in classrooms and orphanages.
