Enrichment Days

Once per term, the entire school participates in an enrichment day. This can take the form of teachers presenting information on a variety of themes or subjects or an outing that has educational value for the entire student body.

 

Enrichment days give children the opportunity to learn something they may not otherwise have been exposed to. Our enrichment themes have included topics such as Authors, Writing genres, Countries, Olympics, Cultures and Inventions to name a few.
