Consistent with its vision of encouraging its students to embrace all facets of life, and enabling them to have a balance that is holistic, our Cultural Department offers a myriad of opportunities for our boys and girls to explore. They are guided and instructed by enthusiastic and highly proficient teachers who instil a passion and love for culture into each individual they deal with throughout the academic year.
Chatterbox exposes our students to the enthralling world of public speaking. Their fears of speaking to large audiences are soon allayed and the confidence with which they are able to address the public is remarkable.
Chess leagues allow our youngsters the opportunity to strategise with military precision as they carefully plan their moves to outwit their opponents on the intellectual battleground.
The ever-popular and rapidly growing Eco Club sees the students taking surveys along the Wetlands in order to determine the population of the resident insect and birdlife. They monitor and record rising and falling water levels and, most importantly, learn to respect and care for our amazing natural world.
Participating in Drama and Productions further grows the confidence of the students, and it is gratifying to witness how adept they become in being able to ad-lib, produce on-the-spot performances and learn the value of positive criticism as they continually evaluate one another’s participation and progress. The host of Arts and Crafts on offer at Woodlands provides a wonderful outlet for our more creative students as they learn to experiment with different media and demonstrate their true artistic potential.
