A new free Virtual Travel Club has been launched to offer Year 6, 7 & 8 students the chance to explore cultural and historic places in the UK and around the world through virtual tours and presentations.

Founded by ISCA, the Independent Schools Cultural Alliance, the club bring together students from the UK, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, USA, Japan, Australia and Italy for the opportunity to learn about global cultures, focusing on the unique history and culture of each place through virtual tours and experiential learning.

The club will meet once a week for six weeks, with each session being led by an ISCA teacher.

“Our programme encourages students to see the world through the eyes of others and develop a diversity of thinking by appreciating and understanding different global cultures,” explained Luke Liddle, ISCA’s managing director. “In addition, this platform encourages teamwork, communication, speaking and listening skills for every one of our students.

“The current COVID-19 pandemic has isolated people through quarantine, lockdowns and border closures. At this time, we feel it is more important than ever to allow students to see the global picture, to broaden their horizons and to look forward to exploring the world in the future.

“We would be delighted to welcome your child to join our Travel Club and encourage them to learn about different parts of the world and to help them on their way to becoming global citizens.”

Luke explained that each session will include a virtual tour of somewhere in the UK or around, focusing on the area’s history and culture through exploring its most popular venues and sights. Each student will join a team which will prepare a presentation on a country and culture of their choice, while also hearing presentation from students based around the world.
