Weekend Activities

 

Adventure Racing (Grades 6-12)

Adventure Racing combines orienteering, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, climbing and running with problem-solving and teamwork. Adventure Race Training at ISL is open to both boys and girls in the Middle School & High School. Adventure Racers have the chance to take part in weekend training expeditions, local VTT events and, depending on exam schedules for High Schoolers, the season often culminates in the amazing DARE Challenge in St. Gilgen, Austria. This is an Adventure Race Event for international schools with up to 30 teams taking part.

This activity commences in trimester 2. For further information about Adventure Racing please contact Philip Keech: pkeech@islux.lu


The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award (Mérite Jeunesse) (Grades 9-12)

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, known in Luxembourg as Mérite Jeunesse, was launched at ISL in 2007. It is open to students aged 14 and over (Grades 9-12) and is designed to help bring out the best in young people in a non-competitive environment. The skills students develop and the values they acquire are valued by universities and employers and will continue to reward them long into their working lives. One of the highlights of the award is the adventurous journey, a rewarding experience that teaches navigational skills, resourcefulness, and teamwork in the context of hiking and camping expeditions where students gain an awareness of wilderness environments and how to survive in them. Planning prior to trips involves one lunchtime per cycle.
High School students in grades 9-12 may enrol in the DoE International Award. An email will be sent for students to sign up.
