Holiday Programmes

Holiday Programmes

We have a range of interesting holiday programmes available during our school holidays in March, June, September and November/December.

These programmes, which also use the Artistic Writing™ teaching approaches, are the perfect way to ensure that your child is productively occupied while enjoying their break from school.

Poster for holiday workshop titled Magical Writing: Making the Impossible Possible

Magical Writing: Making the Impossible Possible (June 2021 Holiday Programme)

Holiday Programme Description:

The fascinating Houdini once said: 'What the eyes see and the ears hear, the mind believes'.

Storytelling and writing does pretty much the same thing: making the impossible possible.

Well, believe it not, we are about to bring you a holiday programme melding together the elements of both magic and writing! With the help of Singapore's premium magician from Tommillusions, Artistic Strategies Academy presents a holiday programme like no other, where children can do magic and elevate their writing.

In this programme, children aged 6 to 12 can:

✅  Watch and participate in a magic show and learn to write from different points of view (audience and participants in a magic show), especially expressing emotions and thoughts of the different characters

✅  Learn how to confidently perform a magic trick and write about the process in an engaging manner

✅  Learn how to read the reactions of the audience and describe these reactions vividly and with sufficient details

Yes, we will focus on sharpening some of the weakest areas in their writing.

Day 1: A magician will perform a magic show. Students will get to be both participants and audience members, and they will write about their experiences.

Day 2: Students will learn to perform a magic trick and present it to their audience. They will write down the steps of this magic trick and also the experience of performing to a live audience.

Although parents cannot be in the class, the performance will be recorded for parents. Limited to 8 students per venue.

Cost: $190 per pax (sign up before 9 May to enjoy the early bird price of $170 only!)

Collateral for You Go Girl holiday camp

You Go, Girl (June 2021 Holiday Programme)

Holiday Programme Description:

Raising young daughters in today's world?

Don't worry, we've got your back.

Our founder Claudine Fernandez and family and children counsellor Yuyun Tan have put their knowledge and expertise together—not to mention personal experiences in navigating life to become strong women and role models—and designed a 3-day intensive to empower girls to become more confident, more resilient versions of themselves.

So, what does that mean?

It means putting to practice the intention to value one's self-esteem, visualising one's ideal self in the future, and learning to make healthy and sometimes difficult choices in life and in relationships.

These activities will be conducted in depth and through interactive and reflective activities including journalling.

Day 1: Me and my self-esteem

The girls will examine their current self-perception and how others perceive them. They will be creating a new self-perception that is filled with positivity.

Day 2: My aspirations

Our facilitators will lead the girls to visualise, discuss and express their aspirations for the future. We will then invite them to create their ideal self in the future and be encouraged to improve their relationship with themselves.

Day 3: My decisions

The girls will be given specific tools and frameworks to make healthy and sometimes difficult choices in their daily life, including navigating their relationships with others. Financial adviser—Nasirah Banu Ramirez from Great Eastern—will also facilitate a game to teach the girls about making sound financial decisions when it comes to savings.

Dates and Times:

1st Run: Mon to Wed, 14–16 Jun 2021

2nd Run: Mon to Wed, 21–23 Jun 2021

Timings: 10am–1pm

Venue: 217 Bedok North Street 1 #02-69 S(460217)

Cost: $420 (sign up by 16 May or refer a friend to sign up together so as to enjoy the discounted price of $400/pax!)

By the end of the camp, they will emerge as more confident and self-assured children.

Suitable for girls aged 6 to 12.
