We had our Parent Support Group night last Tuesday, and this was a big success. The session, chaired by Hannie, focused on Games and Learning. Both parents and staff had a fun time learning, playing and exploring the educational aspects of various card and board games.
Educational games provide a type of fun learning environment that unconsciously helps foster a wide range of skills, such as problem-solving, communication, planning, cooperation and goal setting. They also help students learn from their mistakes and develop high order thinking skills, all the while, having fun!
Look out for our next Parent Support Group night session. We will be looking at Nutrition and its Effects on Children.
So much has been happening that there has been little time for blogging.
Our big news of the moment is our expansion – we are renovating the floor downstairs to make room for all our equipment and to have a big open space for workshops, parent evenings and for administration. The banging stage is over and hopefully it will not be long before our new space is ready.
