Depiro Summer School, has been in operation for 20 years now and has grown in popularity with kids attending year after year. Our main goal is to give children a break from school ensuring that they have an enjoyable summer full of extra-curricular activities. This year we are offering 3 different programs catered for particular age groups. The main targets in the 3 different schedules are; learning through fun, variety, innovation and hands-on activities.
While setting the programs we made sure that everyday children get a good dose of physical activity completely away from classrooms. Accompanying this there are other activities giving the children a whole package of non-formal education. In order to maintain our standards we limit the number of children per class; ensuring that they get the necessary attention and fun.
We offer a service to two distinct groups:
‘The Early Years’: 3 to 4 years and ‘Juniors’: 5 to 14 years
Both groups have the option to attend Depiro Summer School on two, three, four or five days a week.
Early Years program:
The ‘Early Years’ have a diverse program aimed at improving the five strands of developmental milestones; gross motor, fine motor, speech/language, cognitive/problem solving, social/emotional. The activities include; sports, drama, art, storytelling, water games, play dough, board games, cooking, skills (e.g: cutting activities), circle time (entitled as let’s talk) and weekly outings. All these will be linked to a weekly theme facilitating active teaching and learning. This year the early years will explore a different country every week. Click to open – Early years program 3-4
The ‘Junior’ activities will be offering the kids a wide range of sports and educational activities. Both the 5 – 9 and 10+ groups will have sports, drama, art, science, cooking, water games and board games. This year for the 5 – 9 groups we are introducing traditional games. Through this activity children will get the opportunity to familiarize themselves with games such as hopscotch, leapfrog, hoops and skipping. For the 10+ group we are introducing a basic photography course and a basic beauty course. Both sessions will be held by professionals. Additionally, the latter will also have life skills, where speakers from different government and non-governmental will be invited to deliver educational talks. The two groups will also have a weekly outing. Click to Open (5 – 9) Junior years program 5 – 9 – Click to Open (10 + ) Junior years program 10+
