Explore Shanghai Trips

Students at the Western International School of Shanghai are privileged to live in the modern and cosmopolitan city of Shanghai. There are so many things to see in Shanghai. The opportunities for exploration and learning within the Shanghai community are endless. Shanghai has beautiful parks, engaging museums, cultural tours, and historical sights. Shanghai has a lot to offer kids of all ages, and even our youngest students enjoy day trips in Shanghai. We believe learning should extend beyond the Western International School of Shanghai campus.

Global Citizens TRIPS

Global Citizens TRIPS

As an international school, the Western International School of Shanghai believes that meaningful and educational trips abroad are essential for our students. Our international field trip policy is aligned with our beliefs as an IB school to help our students become risk-takers and international-minded citizens.

WISS students have numerous opportunities for international travel through our Distinguishing Programs (Stoke City FC Academy, GAIL, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, and ISTA) and Athletic Teams (Swim Team).

Philippines Diving Trip

Philippines Diving Trip

The Philippines dive trip is optional for students from Grades 9-11. There is room on the trip for anyone interested in diving within those grades, whether they have already qualified or never dived before. The trip aims to introduce students to diving and allow them to gain their Open Water or Advanced Certification in a safe (and beautiful) environment. In addition to the qualification and diving, there is an environmental aspect as all participants not only learn about the impact of pollution and weather and climate change on the ocean and its inhabitants, but they also actively participate in a coral nursery to promote the growth of new colonies. The students partake in numerous adventurous and environmental activities, including Open Water Training, Advanced Dive Training (night dive, deep dive, navigation, search and recovery, perfect buoyancy), coral planting, additional service tasks, recreational diving, and a day trip to a Tarsier sanctuary. This trip aligns with the IB learner philosophy and encourages students to be knowledgeable, principled, inquiring, caring, and balanced risk-takers. It is quite something to see them go from feeling discomfort and disorientation breathing underwater in the pool for the first time to competently and confidently diving in the ocean with all the species on show!
