What is Explore Week?
Explore Week is an annual one-week student expedition held inside or outside of Malaysia that provides students the opportunity to explore and apply learning outside of the classroom with the long-term goal of developing morally-invested global citizens dedicated to lifelong learning.
Explore Week is an extension of RAS’s curriculum and standards designed to challenge students to think differently through exploration about how they learn, what they know and where they live. At RAS, we believe the classroom is only one piece of the learning puzzle and in order to develop all aspects of the student, learning needs to extend outside of classroom walls and into the real world. There, students are exposed to natural learning environments where they are challenged physically and mentally to analyze, evaluate and reflect on their surroundings and their role in it.
