WEEK WITHOUT WALLS & DISCOVERY WEEK

ALTERING STUDENT PERSPECTIVES: ONE JOURNEY AT A TIME

"There exists within everyone a grand passion, an outlandish thirst for adventure, a desire to live boldly and vividly through the journey of life."

- Kurt Hahn

China New Horizons echoes the sentiment that all people have an innate thirst for adventure and a desire to live boldly and vividly. Through our Week Without Walls and Discovery Week programmes we desire to cultivate a sense of adventure and wonder that has no expiration date. Every single day is an opportunity to learn, teach and embrace the human experience. Our WWW’s and Discovery Weeks aim to simply open-up the door for daily, lifelong wonder and adventure.
As international schools are emphasizing the need to educate the whole person, holistically, CNH has been at the forefront of partnering with international schools to provide unique, enriching Week Without Walls (WWW) and Discovery Weeks. CNH Week Without Walls and Discovery Week programmes are closely tied to the IBO with learning outcomes aligned to learner profiles and units of inquiry. These customized programmes can be 1 – 7 days in length and are available for years 1 – 12. Each programme is tailor-made to fit school/student learning progressions and year-level themes.
The WWW/Discovery Week curriculum is uniquely designed to empower every student to live an adventurous and passionate life. The programme emphasis includes self-awareness, community involvement, inquiry into the natural world and outdoor competences. This holistic approach to education is a medium for students to:
  • Become confident and effective leaders and global citizens
  • Sharpen reflective and critical-thinking skills
  • Gain greater awareness of and care for the natural environment
  • Become stronger communicators and more cooperative team members
