Educational Excursions

Kenya Expedition 

In February 2020 students from GEMS Metropole School visited Kenya to help build a new school in Kenya. They worked hard throughout the entire expedition. They started by laying the floor for the new school building as the old building had been deemed structurally unsafe.

They also made part of an elephant deterrent fence which was harder than it sounds and looks. This helped the local community keep their valuable crops free from hungry animals.

De-worming the goats was a hit with the students and they enjoyed goat snuggles afterwards. They were very pleased with themselves as the students managed to beat their target of 100 and de-wormed 122 goats! This was a great help to so many of the local farmers and an amazing opportunity for the students to give back to a global initiative.

Planetarium Trip

Planetarium Trip

During September 2021, year 5 children had the exciting opportunity to experience an overnight stay at Dubai Astronomy Group Planetarium.

Children were able to observe the moon, Jupiter, Saturn and the Sun through powerful telescopes and take part in naked-eye stargazing.

The children learned lots of interesting facts about space exploration, in particular, they were able to watch an amazing planetarium talk all about astronauts exploring the moon.

Throughout the two days, they asked lots of interesting questions and were able to take a tour of the working planetarium to learn about what exciting things happen.

This was their first overnight stay with school; they were all very mature and brave to spend the night away camping!
