The topics include Building Healthy Relationships, Healthy & Wellness, Mapping our Communities, Leadership Development, Creative Writing, Learning Styles, Preparing for the Workplace, Impromptu Speaking, Self Worth, Sex and Sexuality, Coping with Peer Pressure, Financial Planning, Managing Your Money. The methodology fosters interaction and student active participation and includes field trips, panel discussions, role-play, lectures and story telling. During the break, we encourage play including cricket, football, dominoes, board games, and skipping. The students will be placed into three groups: Juniors, Intermediates and Seniors.
July 27th, from 9am to 1:00pm, is dubbed Open/Career Day and parents are specially invited to accompany their children to the various booths to explore career options. In the afternoon there will be a talent component in the Closing Ceremony and parents are also invited to be part of the Talent Show.
