After-School Program Curriculum:

Student Creed:

I am developing myself in a positive manner, avoiding anything that reduces my mental growth or physical health.

I am developing self discipline, bringing out the best in myself and others.

I am using what I learn in class, constructively and defensively, helping myself and others and never being abusive or offensive. Sir!


Rules in class:

The most important thing is …SAFETY FIRST!

Raise 1 hand if you have a question.

Raise 2 hands if you need the bathroom or a drink

If the teacher says “Focus!”, stand at attention and look at the teacher.

If the teacher claps 3 times, then you clap 3 times and stand at attention and look at the teacher.
