Experiential Learning

Experiential learning entails learning through doing and learning through reflection on doing. It is learner-oriented and the learners take responsibility for their own learning.

●    In NYGH, we focus on three domains:
●    Outdoor Adventure and Environmental Learning
●    Service Learning
●    Cross-Cultural Learning

Programmes that incorporate experiential learning include the Boarding School Experience and Global Classroom Programme (see Enrichment).

Rooted in the principles of experiential learning, the programmes are designed to facilitate the development of the girls into reflective, responsive and responsible students who are capable of responsible decision-making and working with people even when taken out of their comfort zone.  These are the qualities that we want to see in our students.  In the process, we hope that our girls will also discover a little more of themselves as part of their learning journey.
