Every year, the School has a few dress-up theme days. Those days are listed in the calendar for parents to be prepared with costumes early on. Below is a list of those days:
The school will be decorated by teachers and students in the run up to the different festivals. The children decorate their classrooms with ornaments and decorations that they have bought or made to make it look festive. Children will come to school in traditional clothes or dressed up in costumes to mark the event. Children can also bring snacks. Please note all dress – up days are optional.
The education of students throughout SKILLS is supported and enhanced through a wide range of educational events. Every Thursday we will have a special event. The list is too long to show them all, but examples include:
At SKILLS, sports play a very important role. We offer our students a wide range of activities and sports during our sports lessons.
We have an annual Sports Day for the Early Years students as well as an annual Sports Day for the Primary / Prep. & Secondary students. During these Sports’ Days parents are invited to attend.
Performing Arts is derived from many different aspects of the curriculum and also various extra- curricular activities. Dance, drama and music are taught within the curriculum of the school, performing to an audience also being a curriculum objective. Performances of instruments, singing, plays and musicals are produced during the year.
Performances range from little assemblies to show other students or parents what theme/s students have been learning in school, to annual class or year group concerts to larger plays or musicals.
Performance Arts help students to gain confidence in their abilities, to learn to work together or alone depending on the type of performance, to learn and develop new skills, and allow them to celebrate a talent or skill that they really enjoy.
We are excited this term to include Activities into the school day every Thursday through the different clubs. Activities replace After-School Activities and provide the opportunity for all children to try new things, develop interests and hobbies, and engage with peers. We will run 5-week activities sessions each term.
