Island School’s Quest Week is a compulsory part of the Island School curriculum. Every year (usually during late October or early November), the normal school curriculum is suspended for a week to provide students with a wide variety of challenging experiences that further their personal growth and development, as well as create opportunities for them to support each other and the local community.
Quest Week is about learning beyond the classroom and the ‘normal curriculum’. Students extend their minds and bodies in ways not usually experienced in a normal week. Students learn to work together, to see the world in different ways, and to broaden their own horizons. For our students in Year 12 and 13 in particular, emphasis is placed on developing Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) as part of their core Island School and IB Diploma experience.
