CHECK THE TIME
The Government of Mongolia cancelled the switch to Daylight Savings Time. Due to this decision, time setting of smartphones, tablets, laptops and other smart devices may now be one hour out of synchronization. They might have changed according to current automatic time-zone configurations set for these devices. If so, they may have moved forward by one hour.
Please check the time settings on all of your smart devices on March 25th. You may need to re-set the time to "Standard" time.
Experiential education refers to learning, usually outside the classroom, by which students learn valuable concepts, skills and attitudes by being more actively, and often, physically involved in the learning activity. For example, going to a zoo and learning through interaction with the zoo environment is experiential and in contrast to reading and talking about animals in a classroom.
The IB programme by its very nature is based strongly on experiential learning. ISU offers many opportunities for students to get involved in outdoor education, service learning, and environmental community-based projects that are forms of experiential education.
In the primary school, students participate in a variety of activities that extends their learning to the outdoors and the community. Picnics, field trips, and overnight camp for students in grades 3, 4, and 5 are organized throughout the year.
In the secondary school, students are similarly involved in a variety of activities, under the auspices of the MYP Community and Service programme, the DP CAS (Creativity, Action, Service) programme, the Mini-, Junior- and Senior-YACs (Young Adventurers Clubs), as well as starting the year off at Secondary Camp with all students and teachers participating.
