Robotics is a branch of technology that develops children’s strategic thinking and scientific understanding.

Several international research studies have concluded that playing chess has a positive influence on the development of cognitive and social skills. Students who attend our chess club learn to solve problems and make decisions, and improve their memory, concentration and mental computation skills as they learn the rules of the game and become master strategists!
Pupils at our Primary School are encouraged to learn creative and practical crafts of varying degrees of difficulty. They put their skills to use by completing specific projects: a pencil case, phone case, bag, Christmas decorations, a hat, etc. The students are free to choose whichever craft they prefer, exchange ideas and make other projects, the choice is limited only by their own imagination.
These activities are aimed at students who may be finding a subject challenging or need to acquire new study/work techniques. The students are helped to absorb and consolidate knowledge in each of the different subjects, reinforce their understanding, learn to study for exams using study plans and overviews and become more motivated to learn.
