Upcoming Holiday Programmes
There is a range of interesting topics available during our school holiday programmes (in March, June, September & 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.

Young Inventors Programme
Description: Perfect for the budding entrepreneur!! In this 3-day workshop, children take on the role of young inventors as they find real solutions to real problems affecting children. Based on Design Thinking Principles originally from Stanford University, the participants of this workshop will be doing the following:
- Research into problems (Day 1)
- Creating prototypes of solutions (Day 2)
- Presenting and "selling" their solutions in a videoclip (Day 3)
At every stage, children will be writing and journaling about their process leading up to their prototype. This ensures that they are actively thinking about how to problem solve and reflecting on how to improve their design.
The presentation on Day 3 also trains them to be confident speakers & writers, as they persuade others to use their products as a viable solution.
September 4-6, 2017 (Monday to Wednesday of the September school holidays)
Cost: $250 per child (This includes all learning materials and a copy of the edited videoclip.)
*Each intake is limited to 5 participants.
Young Authors Programme
Description: Imagine your Primary School child being a published author! In this programme, children will get to publish their own illustrated children's book (approximately 15 pages) after 4 lessons! They will be taught basic illustration skills and guided closely in the process of planning, writing and editing their stories. As a bonus, they will be getting feedback from a real life published author and an illustrator. In addition, they could choose to print additional copies of their books to be sold and the proceeds from the sales would go to their adopted charity.
