Year 11 Trip to Baikal

At Brookes Moscow School, we firmly believe that the best investments are those made with precious moments and unforgettable experiences. That’s why we are thrilled to share the incredible adventure of a lifetime our Year 11 had – a school trip to the mesmerizing Lake Baikal!

Our students were engaged in a range of educational activities and workshops that brought them closer to understanding the unique ecosystems and cultures that call this region home. The trip also had a strong focus on environmental awareness. Our students learnt about the delicate balance of the Baikal ecosystem and how crucial it is to protect this natural wonder.

These experiences are investments in the future that shape not only our students’ characters but also the way they view the world.
