How do we Enrich our Curriculum?


Education is the basic right of every child.  But to provide a dynamic and enriched learning environment, developing the curriculum is vital. We strive to provide many enrichment opportunities for our children, helping their learning to 'come alive'  through an enriched and dynamic curriculum.


The purpose of the enrichment curriculum is to provide a broad range of opportunities to learn and develop outside of the classroom. These opportunities foster professional skills such as resilience, active listening, confidence, self-esteem and teamwork.


The focus of enrichment is the overall development of the whole child. This can include  group projects, practical work, creative expression, personal research, and collaborative thinking. Enrichment activities can encourage students to perform better and keep them motivated, as well as offering access to new and diverse experiences.


Curriculum enrichment is also focused on helping children to acquire a love of learning, enabling them to become innovators and lifelong learners. With the help of the right knowledge and skills, they are more likely to develop their critical thinking, creativity, and scientific enquiry.  Moreover, the acquired skills will help them develop an enriching professional life.
