OBJECTIVES OF THE HOLIDAY PROGRAMME
The programme aims to develop children holistically and promotes learning through structured play by offering a;
Safe – out of mischief and away from the many bad elements that they are exposed to on daily basis,
Disciplined – through brain integration “PACE” to stop and think before acting,
Stimulated – we accept the philosophy that children find identity, meaning and purpose in life through connections in their community and values that include compassion and treating others appropriately. Our approach to the holistic development of children addresses the physical, social, emotional, intellectual, life skills and spiritual aspects of the child.
Nutrition – it is also recognized that hungry children cannot learn as effectively as children who enjoy adequate nutrition. Consequently children are provided with the nutrition required to enhance their learning experience and development. (Breakfast –porridge, midmorning snack – fruit and lunch – cooked meal)
The school feeding scheme does not operate during school holidays which results in children having little or nothing to eat for the day.
The stories told covered the following outcomes and would assist the children build their character in the future;
“Being the best you can be” – Is there ever a reason not to try ones best, has anyone been teased about something that they are not good at, how did you feel and how did you handle it. We are all different and can never be like someone else, therefore we have to explore what is our purpose
“Honesty and Obedience” – To always stop and think and think about the consequences of the choices we make.
