We Care About Kids

All children have a right to quality education in a safe, clean and decent environment

We provide extra-curricular activities. These are activities that take place outside of school hours—before school, after school or during lunch. These activities may include sports, hobbies, drama, singing, leadership training, arts or volunteer work. Our school has different extra-curricular activities for students. Taking part in these activities improve the child’s mind and ability to learn. They will also help children make friends, adjust to being in a school and develop new interests.
