A variety of residential trips are organised for students both to places of educational interest in Brazil and overseas. Costs for these trips are not included in tuition fees and must be paid for separately. The following residential trips have been organised annually in previous years:
Class 6 – Pantanal Trip
Classes 7 or 8 - Foz do Iguaçu Trip
Classes 10 & 11 – Ouro Preto (biannual for BSS students)
Classes 9 or 10 – CAS Trip
Class 3 – Petrópolis Trip
Class 4 – Paraty Trip
Class 5 – Itatiaia Trip
Optional trips usually occur during school holidays or over the weekend, with the exception of sports tournaments. International trips are organised by various departments of the Secondary School. These have included Art & Drama trips to New York or London, French trips to Quebec or Paris and Spanish trips to Argentina or Chile. Students in the Secondary School who participate in team sports may also be involved in inter-school competitions outside Rio de Janeiro twice yearly. Students participating in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme are involved in outdoor pursuit trips over the weekend. In all cases, costs are not included in the tuition fee and must be paid for separately.
Other costs involve personal school materials (a minor ‘School Materials List’ is sent to Primary students), some Portuguese books, transportation and school uniform.
