Blending education with environmental awareness has been one of the focuses of The Cliffs Interpretation Centre. In fact, The Centre promotes its activities to school students at different ages and curricular development. Whilst school visits have been offered for quite some time at The Centre (Website Link), these have been upgraded since the last scholastic year 2015-2016. Such school visits offer an authentic and innovative experience of learning about the ecological diversity, history, archaeology, culture, gastronomy and local produce of Dingli Cliffs and the surroundings.
The Cliffs Interpretation Centre has blended the environment with tourism in several school outings to ITS students. Lately, it has updated its outings to be in agreement with the learning expectations of students. The outings, offered to ITS in different courses range from Foundation to Certificate levels and enable students to gain a better foothold on their long-term career paths. They also teach students on the importance of promoting tourism during the off-peak months, together with day-to-day practices of the industry and the visitors. School visits (Website Link) are also offered to university students as an out-of-the-classroom experience, amalgamated with a healthy invigorating walk along Dingli Cliffs.
Other school outings are offered to secondary school students to improve their knowledge and understanding of the interconnections between nature and humans within the protected area of Dingli Cliffs. Students learning subjects such as Geography, History, Biology, Integrated Science, and Home Economics are encouraged to appreciate the surroundings.
Apart from curriculum-related activities, The Cliffs Interpretation Centre has been involved in several educative sessions to children and youths (2014, 2015, 2016) including lectures on Dingli Cliffs and its varied environmental and historical features.
These activities, organised by The Cliffs Interpretation Centre, all aim to enhance the environmental awareness of what Dingli Cliffs have to offer, whilst enhancing the learning experience of visitors for both curriculum-related and recreational activities.
