Y7 and Y8 scale Antwerp harbour cranes
At Da Vinci, you're never disappointed when you hear the two words "field trip". In this case, Y7 and Y8 were lucky enough to hear they were going to go on an adventure to discover the old cranes along the river Scheldt. Antwerp being the beautiful city it is, made our walk interesting and exciting, and the 40 minutes were gone in the snap of a finger.
Y3 Trip to museum Mayer van den Bergh
The lucky students in Year 3 had the pleasure of a trip to Museum Mayer Van Den Bergh in the company of the Year 12 English B class. To promote the IB attributes of Caring and Communicating and to practise their English B language skills outside of the classroom, the Year 12 students each prepared presentations on two museum pieces from a collection of thousands (though not all on display at the same time) and enthralled the Year 3 children with the stories behind the portraits, paintings and statues on display.
Y2 Trip to Toy Museum
Our Year 2 class has been researching, designing and, of course, playing with toys as part of their IPC unit. As a highlight of their learning journey they hopped on the train to visit the Toy Museum in Mechelen!

Y9 & Y10 Plantin-Moretus museum
What better way to learn about the origin of books, both in text and graphic form, than taking a trip to the home of printing in Antwerp, the Plantin-Moretus museum. A Unesco world heritage site, this 400 year old building, once the home of Christophe Plantin and his family, is now the proud exhibitor of the work of Lodovico Guicciardini.
