Campus Guided Tours
Come join us for a Jalan Jalan (Indonesian for ‘a walk’) around our beautiful bamboo campus. In addition to the famous architecture, you’ll learn about our sustainability practices and what it’s like to be a Green School student in this progressive and wall-less place of learning.
Your Jalan Jalan tour leader, who may be a staff member, parent, or student, will guide you around the campus while sharing the Green School story and answering your questions. What will be your favorite? Aquaponics, the majestic bridge, the micro-hydro vortex, or the Green School music you’re sure to hear in the background!
In addition to your regular guided tour of our campus, we also have options to extend your visit with our various Extended Tours. See permaculture in action at our neighbouring Kul Kul Farm, or get up close in our Kembali recycling centre. There are plenty of options to see more of what our neighbourhood has to offer.
Do you want to learn more about the wider Green School family, stay longer with us and eat a succulent Balinese lunch?
We offer 4 extended tours that you can join after the regular Green School Guided Tour: (limited to 15 people maximum)
Mondays: 11:00 am to 12:30 pm – KulKul Farm
Five minutes walk from Green School, deeper in the jungle, hides KulKul Farm, an amazing permaculture farm, Green School’s close partner.
After a Jalan Jalan at the farm, learning about basic permaculture farming, you will be served a succulent Balinese lunch. You will be back to Green School by 12:30pm
Tuesdays: 11:00 am to 12:30 pm Students Village
Green School’s boarding area is not only dormitories. It is an entire village where sustainable living is part of the students’ life.
Life at the village is rich and inspiring. Be part of it for an hour and get inspired as well. After enjoying a delicious Balinese lunch, our Bio Bus will pick you up and you will be back to Green School by 12:30pm
Wednesdays: 11:00 am to 12:30 pm – Kul Kul Connection
Kul Kul Connection is a project that aims to unite and integrate the local community of Sibangkaja with the international community of Green School. During this tour, you’ll be guided by a local historian along with a member of our Kul Kul Connection team who will act as your translator. You will learn about traditional Balinese dress and how to make offerings.
A five minute walk with take you to a local temple, where you will learn about how ceremony and prayers are central to the daily life of the Balinese. If you wish, you will then be invited to make offerings and prayers at the temple. Your guide will then lead you onto another important temple next to the river and share an intriguing local legend describing the history of the land that Green School was built on. On return to Green School a Balinese lunch will be served by Green School’s community treasure: Ibu Kadek.
Thursdays: 11:00 am to 12:30 pm – Kembali
Kembali means to return, to come back in Indonesian. This is our recycling center. By joining this tour you will really contribute to the Green School mission that is to contribute to make this world more sustainable. After another Jalan Jalan, gathering trash, cleaning the area, you will learn how to make really nice upcyled products (new objects made out of recycling products). After that, time for a Balinese lunch prepared by Green School’s community treasure: Ibu Kadek.
We strongly recommend that you arrive 30 minutes before the start of the tour for check-in and registration. The Jalan Jalan begins promptly at the scheduled time and because it leaves the reception area, we are not able to accommodate late arrivals. If for a reason you arrive later than the start of the tour, you will unfortunately be asked to reschedule for another day.
The walk around Green School will be an adventure. We are located on a steep ravine, so be prepared with the right walking shoes or sandals as we will be walking on rocks, and going up and down many steps. We don’t recommend bringing heavy backpacks or luggage. We suggest wearing light clothes and bringing an umbrella or raincoat, especially during the rainy season.
Our primary focus is the safe and respectful learning environment for our students. We therefore kindly request your cooperation with our tour guidelines:
Tour participants are limited to 30 people daily
Gate opens 30 minutes before tour starts
ID will be required to enter Green School
The tour guide will make stops at designated places for some fantastic photos during your tour. Please respect that we are a school and refrain from taking photos of students or staff from close-up or from afar at any point during the tour.
