Middle and Secondary Week Without Walls

Middle and Secondary students have an opportunity to participate in a Week Without Walls in May of each school year.

 

Classrooms without walls create students without limits.

 While middle and secondary students have many opportunities to travel outside the country for academic conferences and athletic events, QSI's Week Without Walls program is designed to give students experiences that will inspire them to become global citizens. 

QSI considers field trips to be an important part of a comprehensive education. These trips offer unique travel opportunities to learn about new areas, and deepen the bonds between fellow students, teachers and the school. International education should go beyond the confines of the school campus and the immediate Sarajevo city boundaries. The concepts and learning gained through experiences “in the field” are valuable to students in both academic and personal areas. Student participation in these field trips is expected, as they are linked to curriculum and may not be duplicated at home.


 

2016 - 2017 WEEK WITHOUT WALLS

LONDON

 

          

 

We left QSI with all our luggage and extreme excitement about the week in London that we would soon embark upon. It was a long day of travel, but fun to be with friends. After arriving in London we found our hostel and enjoyed some pizza.

          

 

We have had an amazing day in London! This morning we walked along the Thames River to the Globe, where we explored the theater. We participated in a Shakespeare Workshop and viewed an amazing art exhibition. We then had lunch and made our way to the Imperial War Museum. After exploring the museum we took a guided walking tour of London. We saw the Parliament House, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Downing Street, Buckingham Palace...and much more! We had dinner at Hard Rock cafe. After which we returned to the hostel.

                                

 

Today we went on a Thames River cruise where we learned some 'insider' secrets from our guide. We saw the Tower of London Bridge open and then we had lunch next to the Tower of London. Next, we headed to Chelsea Stadium where we learned about how football clubs make money. We also got to see the players' dressing room, the press center, the players boxes - and even got to sit where the Chelsea players sit!
We then had dinner at Bubba Gump.

                                

 

We have had another great day in London! This morning we toured King's College, one of London's oldest universities. We learned about the programs they offer as well as the application process.  Afterward, we toured the Museum of London. Then, we had dinner at Bella Italia and made our way to The Globe where we watched a wonderful performance of Shakespeare's The Twelfth Night.

                                 

 

Today was another busy day. We went on an original bus sightseeing tour and took a flight on the London Eye.
 

Week Without Walls has been an amazing experience for everyone. We will not say goodbye, but simply "See you soon, London!"
