School Trips Survey

According to a study by Smith, E. et al. (2022)- The Impact of Extracurricular Activities on Student Outcomes. Out-of-school activities are important both educationally and in terms of wider personal development. Studies have shown that students who participate in out-of-school activities have higher academic achievement, better school attendance, and develop stronger social-emotional skills compared to their peers. These activities add to the curriculum, build confidence, and increase skills.

Recent tragic incidents in Africa, particularly in South Africa, have underscored the consequences that can arise from inadequate planning and preparation for school field trips. Over the past 5 years, there have been 14 reported fatalities of students during school-organized field trips across the African continent. These incidents emphasize the need for thorough trip planning and robust safety measures to protect students on educational outings away from the school.
