Our programs are designed to better the children’s mathematics, reading, writing, creative, presentation and physical skills. These programs fill a significant gap in the education they receive. Some of our main programs are listed below.

Competitions

We hold several competitions throughout the year. The competitions involve mathematical facts, spelling bee and recycling. The children compete against one another in all of these areas. Preparation for these competitions encourages the children to practice hard and study well. Prizes are awarded and light refreshments are given at the finale.

Reading Month

Reading Month takes place throughout the month of June. During this time, we encourage the children to read as many books as they can or have books read to them by staff and volunteers. Our aim is to bring children up a reading level and improve their reading comprehension skills. A sponsored banquet with prizes is held at the end, this finale rewards children for their hard work and dedication.
We have now included an on-going intensive reading program teaching one-on-one to children who are not reading.

Research Projects and Performing Arts

Research Projects and Performing Arts take place throughout the year. During these times the children research various topics ranging from African studies to environmental issues. These studies enable the children to better their reading, writing, creative, presentation and performance skills. The children present their work or perform to an audience of students and guests. Often these projects coincide with international awareness days, like Earth Day, World Water Day and Anti-Bullying Week.
