Chartwell International School

Chartwell International School

As an all encompassing education includes the social element and the need for children to become more independent which is sometimes neglected or overseen, Chartwell organizes residential trips during the school year giving its students this opportunity as well. There is one residential trip in the primary and two in the secondary school, one of which is a ski trip.

 

Every June secondary students celebrate the end of the year with a school trip usually around Serbia. Last school year, the students accompanied by their teachers, first headed for Zlatibor on the way spending the day at Skakavac waterfall where they competed in making barbecues and roasting hot dogs. The next day they visited the Uvac lake and the Ice cave and tried themselves out in hiking. The following morning they visited the Milesevo Monastery and spent the rest of the day enjoying the wonders of the Sopotnica waterfalls – they hiked, they drunk water directly from the spring, they balanced on logs, played catch the flag, they got wet as they splashed around through the water, they enjoyed lighting a fire and making pancakes with Nutella cream..The day ended in a domestic household where they enjoyed some domestic pies, cheese, ajvar, cakes, rose juice, etc and they spent the evening rolling down the hill through the tall grass. The trip ended with a water fight in the school yard. In the end everybody was tired and wet but happy.

 

Every year at the beginning of February, Chartwell Secondary Students spend a week on a mountain attending a “School in the Snow”. Monday through Sunday the students enjoy the fresh mountain air while skiing or learning to ski. However, the academics are not forgotten – between skiing during the day from 9 to 4 and spending evenings skating, going for hot chocolate, walking or simply chatting, listening to music or watching movies, some hours are spent studying. The School in the Snow is organized in Austria, on Kopaonik, on Zlatibor...
