All Geared Up to Wow!

Months of preparation for the year-end concert was finally coming to a conclusion. Just before the "big" day, our Star Learners children had a full dress rehearsal in the centre. The children from the respective levels danced to the beat of different song genres , from Chinese folk songs to pop songs including "Mambo Number 5" and the ever popular "Nobody". Seeing the children twisting and turning in their fanciful costume was definitely a treat to the eye. We are so sure our parents will be very impressed by the actual performance so till then! Enjoy!

Dough Masters!

Fine-motor skill development is very important in children as this will determine their hand-writing ability and one of the best way to improve this essential skill is through dough-modelling.

Our Star Learners children at Boscombe recently had a dough-modelling session. It was a day where they were encouraged to let their imagination run wild they so did! Just a look at their creations and you will know what I mean. This is no doubt killing two birds with one stone; fine-motor skills development + creativity all-in-one!

Joy + Tears for our graduates!

On the 17th of December, we held our year-end concert for our graduating K2 Star Learners. Apart from the singing and dancing, we included a surprise segment where we showcased a book which was conceptualised, illustrated and written entirely by our K2 cohort in the middle of the year. The book is a compilation of our Star Learners children's thoughts, ideas and creativity. They discussed and came up with the story line, the characters and worked together to complete the story. Thereafter, they did the illustrations which added life to the story.

Such is the kind of foundation we have built in our Star Learners children and we sincerely hope that the children will continue writing great stories. In addition, kudos to all children and parents who have made the concert a tremendous success! We will miss our lovely K2 graduates!
