At Britannica, we firmly believe that residential trips are a vital component of a well-rounded education, especially in our Primary education. These immersive experiences allow our students to step outside their comfort zones, build meaningful connections, and develop key life skills that will serve them long into the future.

This school year, we were thrilled to offer three exceptional residential programs - a Year 4+5 trip to Chongming Island, a pioneering Year 3 trip to Dianshan Hu, and a special Year 2 sleepover right here on our own school grounds. Each of these adventures showcased the power of residential experiences to transform our students in remarkable ways.

On Chongming Island, our Year 4 and 5 students embraced the opportunity to work collaboratively, test their limits, and put our school values into action. Whether working as a team during archery tag, mastering the art of catapult-building, or working in pairs to kayak around the scenic lakes, our young adventurers demonstrated unwavering teamwork, resilience, and a spirit of discovery.

Building on this success, we introduced our very first Year 3 residential program at Dianshan Hu. For many of these students, it was their first time spending an extended period away from home, and the experience proved transformative. Through activities like archery, orienteering andsoaring through the treetops on zip lines, our Year 3 scholars forged deep connections with their peers and teachers, cultivating empathy, independence, and a love for the great outdoors.

Recognising the importance of instilling these valuable skills from an early age, we also introduced a special Year 2 sleepover right here on our school grounds. This immersive experience allowed some of our youngest students to sample the magic of a residential program in a safe, familiar environment. our Year 2 students embraced the adventure with boundless energy and excitement.

At Britannica Primary School, we are committed to nurturing well-rounded, resilient individuals who are prepared to navigate the complexities of the 21st century. Our residential programs play a crucial role in this endeavor, providing our students with opportunities to develop essential life skills, foster meaningful connections, and unlock their full potential. As we look to the future, we are excited to continue expanding our residential offerings and empowering our young learners to reach new heights.
