Nursery and Primary : School Trips

In the nursery and primary school, school trips and excursions are closely linked to the educational objectives and to the program. Therefore, they are obligatory. 

  • In P1 and P2 excursions are only organised during the school day. 
  • In P3, P4 and P5  excursions during the school day are organised, as well as school trips for several days. 

Parents receive detailed information from the class teachers and the school management in advance for all school trips and excursions. 

P3 : Green classes – trip to Massembre 

In the third year of primary, all P3 classes go together on a 5 day school trip to Massembre. 

Massembre is a  centre just outside the village of Heer, close to the French border.  

During the day enjoyable educational activities are organised for the children within and outside the centre, such as creating weather stations, fossil hunting or looking for animal traces. 

P4 : Sea classes – trip to De Haan 

In the fourth year of primary school, the P4 classes go on a five-day trip.  

 The sea class “Le Chat Botté” takes place in Belgium on the North Sea.  

 The children will be able to do many water activities but also manual activities. The aim is to discover the marine environment. They will observe tidal phenomena, tidal currents and also the fauna and flora.   

P5 : Snow class in Zinal, Switzerland

The European School of Luxembourg I is a place of knowledge acquisition and open to the world around it.  

The snow class is integrated into the school’s educational project and the P5 discovery class program. It is a founding step that contributes to giving meaning to learning by encouraging direct contact with the natural or cultural environment of the mountain (discovery of the mountain environment, lifestyle, etc.).  

Skiing allows you to gain greater body comfort and self-confidence. This moment of collective life is a true education for citizenship (learning to live together, respect for others…). 

The P5 snow class takes place in Zinal, Switzerland during the month of December. The ski stay lasts about 9 days and 8 nights.  Transport is provided by top quality buses with experienced drivers and accommodation is provided at Hotel Les Diablons, with all the amenities of a 4-star hotel. The menus are studied by a dietician. The medical team consists of a doctor and two nurses. The children are supervised by their full teacher, supported by the instructors of the Ecole de Mons. Alpine skiing is supervised by ski instructors who are graduates of the Swiss Ski School. Ski lessons are adapted to the level of practice of children with groups of beginners and advanced skiers.
