Extra Curricular

ROBOTICS

Programming can be too abstract. By having to control a physical robot and seeing what goes wrong.  Students learn what robots can and can't do. They also learn the need for precise instructions. Robotics helps address the growing demand for teaching science, technology, engineering and maths in schools. As well as exemplifying technology directly by programming the robot, students also learn about science, engineering, and maths and get an understanding of how these subjects link together.

STREET ART

Our club uses designated indoor and outdoor areas to work on. Students design a concept and paint it, using spray paint and graffiti materials and techniques. Depending on age and skill, the themes tackled in the designs may vary, but they all have in common that they emerge from and encourage critical thinking about serious issues, such as human pollution of the environment, peer pressure, effects of social media, etc. The most important aspect of this club is for students to have fun while they are expressing themselves artistically. 

 

 

EXPLORING

The aim of the Exploring Club afterschool program is to instill in kids great principles and values, preparing them to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes, the development of physical, mental, and emotional fitness (fitness includes the body: well-tuned and healthy, the mind: able to think and solve problems, and the emotions: self-control, courage, and self-respect. To achieve these goals, we have found inspiration in the World Scout Movement and their methods, basing our activities on the "Do-It-Yourself principles" and outdoor activities always in direct contact with nature. Exploring Club is designed to take place outdoors. It is in the outdoor setting that kids share responsibilities and learn to live with one another. It is here that the skills and activities practiced, in theory, come alive with purpose. Being close to nature helps children gain an appreciation for the environment. The outdoors is the laboratory for our young explorers to learn ecology and practice conservation of nature's resources.

 

FLOORBALL

Floorball is a fast, fun, safe and excellent team sport. The nature, design, and weight of the floorball stick also ensure that students of all ages can take part in floorball activities. Floorball is also an inclusive sport, meaning that everyone can participate, regardless of size and physical ability. The nature of floorball in a school setting is also quite flexible. While playing floorball, students are constantly moving around while trying to move the ball to their peers with the use of a stick. This notion will have a positive impact on the students' motor skills including hand-eye coordination and balance.

RHYTHMIC GYMNASTICS

Children benefit from an active lifestyle and participating in any sport. The American Academy of Pediatrics believes that partaking in organized sports provides a chance for young people to increase their activity and develop socially and physically. Gym.Net adds that gymnastics is one of the most comprehensive lifestyle exercise programs available to children, incorporating strength, flexibility, speed, balance, coordination, power, and discipline. Whether they are involved in recreational gymnastics or with a competition squad, skills learned in gymnastics can benefit a child's overall development.
