Why School Enrichment Matters

  1. Enrichment Fosters Passion and Curiosity

Enrichment classes provide an avenue for students to explore their interests, passions, and curiosities. Traditional subjects are essential, but enrichment programs enable students to dive deeper into areas they are genuinely enthusiastic about.

Participating in extracurricular classes builds essential life skills, including teamwork, time management, and communication. These skills are not only beneficial academically but also in future careers.

  1. Diverse Learning Opportunities

Enrichment classes often offer a broad range of subjects that may not be part of the core curriculum. This diversity broadens students' knowledge and encourages them to develop well-rounded perspectives. This includes our Spanish for Beginners, LGBTQ+ Community and Friendship Group.

What exciting Enrichment do we have on?

This October, students from our school embarked on a trip to London. The excursion was filled with an array of experiences. On day one, they paid a visit to several renowned museums and a had an evening meal at Café Rouge.

On day one, attended the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum, Café Rouge, and the Tate Modern. The Natural History Museum has a vast collection from the evolution of species to the formation of minerals, life-size dinosaur replicas and even visual image to show the impact of human activity on the environment. Then they attended the Science Museum, a place where science comes to life. From interactive displays on space exploration to exhibitions on the history of computing and communication, the highlight was the visit to the space gallery, where we marveled at rockets and spacecraft that have ventured into the cosmos.

On Day Two, they began at the Tate Modern, hat has a collection of modern and contemporary art. This museum, located in a converted power station, featured works by some of the most renowned artists of the 20th and 21st centuries from a Picasso masterpiece or a Warhol creation. The next two stops were the The London Dungeon and Tower of London. The London Dungeons were a dark journey through the city's past. From the Great Fire of London to the plague, they encountered history's most chilling moments. The Tower of London, has history dating back over a thousand years. The students learned of the imprisonment, and plots that went on, seen the Crown Jewels and strolled along the medieval walls. In the evening, the students experienced the Ripper tour through the cobbled streets of Whitechapel, where the serial killer left a trail of terror in the late 19th century. Our students thoroughly enjoyed a trip to London, exploring the history and learning about the different centuries.
