The aim of KSIM Discovery Week is to extend the curriculum beyond the walls of the classroom and boundaries of the school by providing unique, inspirational and challenging situations for all our students.
We are excited by the potential for them all to realise personal growth and strengthen friendships, develop team and leadership skills, and experience independence and responsibility.
All activities that take place during Discovery Week are planned and designed to assist them to become aware of, and accept, their responsibilities while celebrating their rights as global citizens.
Our next KSIM Discovery Week is scheduled to take place from 19th – 23rd February 2024, and once again will enable all students to participate in a combination of three types of experiences:
In addition to the many wonders that have already been explored and discovered within the borders of Montenegro, since the launch of our first Discovery Week in 2019 groups of KSIM students have enjoyed the opportunity to pack their bags and travel to London, Paris, Reykjavik, Rome and Vienna!
- Global Studies: Students deepen their understanding of the world through a focused, curriculum-related area of inquiry.
- Eco Adventure: Students learn and develop physically, emotionally, and intellectually while being fully immersed in the natural environment.
- Service Learning: Students learn and develop through active contribution in thoughtfully prepared service that meets the needs of a community.
It is no secret Montenegro is a breathtakingly beautiful country with an abundance of wild nature, but is also rich in culture and history. KSIM Discovery Week provides our students with even more opportunities to explore and discover our wonderful host country with its glorious coastline, rivers and canyons, clear lakes, remote forests, and giant mountains – let’s also not forget our ‘home’ and the neighbouring towns around Boka Kotorska (Boka Bay).

Students are often deeply impacted by these kinds of experiences, and will fondly remember them long after their days at KSIM are over; experiences that help to guide our students toward future ideals and decisions that will shape their world. Experiential learning is one of the essential REAL learning components that supports each KSIM student in reaching their potential and being all they can be.
