Be prepared for a schedule brimming with activity. From morning roll call to parents’ arrival, students are busy in the classroom, on field trips, on the sports field or involved in a variety of practical activities. Students will find it an atmosphere of both fun and challenge and will be invited to help create that atmosphere.
All students age nine and older participate in “Student Services,” a program of contribution to the operation and maintenance of the school. This not only helps the school run smoothly, but also helps the students gain a greater appreciation and responsibility for the work involved, and gives them experience in producing and exchanging as part of an organization. Students spend 15 to 30 minutes each day helping out in a variety of areas––doing office work, gardening and assisting teachers (making copies, running messages, cleaning or reorganizing areas of the classroom, reading aloud to younger students, etc.).
