Grow with our Work and Leisure Programme
As our children grow, we want them to be exposed to opportunities that can enrich their lives. With some of our older kids in particular, they may have talents that are undiscovered or they may like talents that are undeveloped. We hope to help them discover and develop their talents, which can be used for leisure and perhaps for work should they show the aptitude and interest.
Basic DSLR Camera Photography Course
Through this photography course, your child will learn the basic skills of DSLR photography. They will learn about the camera, the different terminologies commonly used, and how to apply these so as to take the best photographs in a variety of settings. They will also be able to explore their own areas of interest. Through this course, your child will learn to see things from a different perspective, develop a sense of agency as they are in control of the shots they take, build confidence through each photograph, and as well as learn how to make decisions such as choosing what to focus on in a shot.
The sports programme caters to a range of different needs and abilities. As we know, movement is beneficial for the brain. John Ratey, author of ‘A User’s Guide to the Brain’ terms exercise as “Miracle-Gro” for the brain because of how it can stimulate nerve growth factors. Researchers have found that when children are given the chance to run 15 – 45 minutes before class, they were less distracted and more attentive. Another study showed that brisk walking 30 – 40 minutes a day, three times a week could regrow structures in the brain linked to cognitive decline. Dr Daniel Siegel has suggested that movement can be a powerful way to change emotions. Many of us regulate via movement. Sports can also be a fun way to engage socially with others.
