ISC-Erbil Students Enjoy Field Trip

More than 100 students from the International School of Choueifat-Erbil recently participated in recreational activities during a field trip to a local sports facility. Organized by the school’s Student Life Organization, the students in grades 5 and 9 chose between two activities − ice skating or bowling.

With professional instructors on hand at the ice skating rink, students who chose to skate enjoyed their time on the ice. “We are happy to provide our students with field trips where they can try something new,” commented ISC-Erbil Director, Dr. Humaira Bokhari. “Many of the students had never ice skated or bowled before, so it was an exciting opportunity for them.”

Commenting on the importance of extracurricular activities, Dr. Bokhari added, “Not only was it an activity for fun, but also one that provided students with a chance to build trust among peers and develop teamwork skills.” An ISC-Erbil student said, “Even if you’ve been to the ice skating rink or bowling alley before, the experience is so different when you come with your school.  It seems to have a special meaning.”
