Environmental Awareness

We have a responsibility to educate our students and our community about caring for the planet on which we all rely. Our aim is to equip our students with the knowledge and critical thinking skills required to inform their own decisions, and to empower them to take action. To facilitate this we offer opportunities to engage with sustainability themes in order to understand how to confront the challenges resulting from human activity and to take meaningful action.

Model United Nations

Surabaya European School students have been participating in Model United Nations (MUN) conferences in the past. We hope that we can provide a useful and memorable experience to students, not only to speak up on their own, but to solve problems and improvise for the future. We believe that through MUN, students will gain skills and recognition, additionally MUN proves helpful for important decisions such as applying to schools in the future.


Excursions and trips form an important part of our students’ education by allowing them to interact with other cultures and environments both domestically and internationally. In addition to numerous Primary and Secondary school excursion. School excursions, our students are also offered opportunities involved with the International Award and the Model United Nations (MUN).
