The Sports – Dance Program aims to provide children with an early stimulus by acquainting them with a variety of sports or dance, so that they will continue, if they choose, with specialized training. Our objective is to provide proper training so that children will enjoy the sport they have selected or so that they will join the School’s competitive sports program.
Elementary School 1st – 2nd grades
With the implementation of extended hours in Elementary School, each day students have an opportunity to become creatively engaged and to gain different experiences in sports activities, at no additional cost.
