Green Park

A new recreational area for our students

Giving the students the option to participate with their peers in games of table tennis, giant chess, volleyball, badminton, or a game of golf on our putting green.

The world is constantly changing, families rushing trying to fit in all the scheduled activities, the green park gives our students the freedom to enjoy themself and be children.

Children who play outdoors are more likely to develop physical literacy skills, maintain a healthy weight, and have good mental health.

If students are to become lifelong learners, it is important that they do not see the classroom as the only place in which learning takes place.
Just taking the time to notice what is around them and seeing everyday objects, such as trees and pathways, as stimuli for learning broadens the students’ horizons and boosts their imagination.

Increased Motivation:

Children of any age naturally have the need to move around. A sufficient amount of physical activities outdoors freshen the mind and body. Thereafter, children are happy, motivated, and relaxed to do activities indoors. They can focus better on the task at hand as play stimulates the neural connections in the brain and helps in regulating emotions, make plans, and solve problems.

Enhanced communication and socio-emotional skills:
Outdoor education calls for collaboration and team-building tasks. Children learn to communicate with each other, problem-solve, and build healthy relationships. It gives students the space to explore, discover and think freely, thus reducing barriers to communication.

Improved memory and imagination:

Spending time in a fixed environment or lighting throughout the day can create a fixed pattern, however, moving outdoors for some time opens up a world of fresh stimuli, resulting in making better connections to learning and improving the power of recall and retention.
