Forest School Programme

Reconnecting to the Natural World

Klang Valley's First Accredited Forest School
Nexus Forest School sets a new benchmark as the first International School in Klang Valley to offer Forest School Sessions accredited by the UK's Forest School Learning Initiative (FSLI). All teachers who conduct the Forest School programme have undergone training sessions with FSLI, and are equipped with the knowledge, skills and expertise to ensure our forest school sessions are engaging and safe.

A Rainforest Within the School
Nexus Forest School is nestled within our own school compound, conveniently accessible by our community. Currently, our Forest School Sessions cater to learners in Years 1 & 2, who embark upon a captivating journey of discovery with 10 sessions per year.

Our meticulously designed Forest School Sessions go beyond traditional education, encouraging learners to take the lead in their own learning journey. Guided by six foundational principles, our child-centred approach nurtures individual growth, instilling resilience, confidence, independence, and creativity. With nature as their extraordinary classroom, young learners at Nexus Forest School develop a profound connection with the natural world, cultivating an ecological mindset and a deep appreciation for ethical and sustainable living. Through our holistic approach, we empower our students to become global citizens, fostering a sense of responsibility and understanding of their role in creating a better future for our planet.

Nexus learners gain knowledge about the wonders of flora and fauna, actively contribute to conservation efforts, and courageously assess risks. Through building shelters, mastering tools, tying knots, and even making fires, they grow in resilience, confidence, and independence.

As proud participants of Nexus Forest School, our learners are known as "Wolves in the Wild."
