NEW SCRUMMIES PLAYGROUND
Learning and development happens through scaffolding – starting from a solid foundation and then using previous knowledge to explore and learn more.
God designed little children to develop and grow by exploring with their senses and by moving their bodies. It is through meaningful play that little ones build that solid foundation from which successful future learning can take place.
PARTNERSHIP WITH ALLIANCE FRANCAISE AND INTERNATIONAL FRENCH EXAMINATIONS (DELF)

KEEP THIS VILLAGE ALIVE
It has been the sudden and devastating reality that some sectors of our economy have been brought to a complete halt. It is important for all of us to understand that without intervention this village we live in will be irreparably harmed.
A TIME TO RESET
Change always brings opportunity. Our opportunity during lockdown, from a sports perspective, has been to step off the roller coaster that is week-in, week-out fixtures, pre-seasons that intrude on current seasons, early morning HP sessions, tours, festivals; and just breathe for a moment. The opportunity to take stock has been interesting.
