Enrichment programs are after school activities designed to give students the opportunity to try new things and explore and develop interests outside of the classroom. Activities can range from sports to cooking, from drawing to coding. We have passionate teachers and external instructors, who can run an activity that aligns with the interests of your students.
Enrichment programs are not just something that fills time between school and home though. They have a huge number of benefits and provide opportunities for students to further their interests from the classroom or to try something totally new. They help students develop a love for learning in their own time, expand their mind and gain skills that will help them in their academic and professional careers. Learning outside the classroom also gives students the opportunity to experiment and take risks with no implications.
We particularly focus on collaboration and teamwork as our programs often bring together students from a range of different backgrounds and age groups.
Students participating in enrichment activities not only build technical knowledge, but also develop vital future skills such as working collaboratively with new people, problem solving and presentation skills.
They are not being graded or compared to their peers and so students can try things out and learn from their mistakes. This, in turn, will build students’ confidence as they learn new skills and immerse themselves in new experiences.
Though the activities may take place outside the classroom, the benefits will follow into their studies. According to Harvard Family Research Project “After School Programs in the 21st Century: Their Potential and What It Takes to Achieve It”, has “repeatedly underscore the impact of supporting a range of positive learning outcomes, including academic achievement by affording children and youth, opportunities to learn and practice new skills through hands-on, experiential learning.”These benefits are all true of our experience at Aurobana Indian School. As after-school programs are in a student’s own time, we know it’s important to provide an educational but also fun and sociable environment.
