Programme Specifications

The Holistic Creative Writing Programme (prose) is a special programme (outside of the regular school classes) that entails the following:

  • Descriptive writing
  • Narrative writing
  • Lateral thinking skills
  • Other life skills that no school curricula will provide, such as emotional wellbeing and effective communication skills (both orally and in written)

All children attending this course will be interactively participating, with no discrimination, under no circumstance!

As a result of attending this programme, children will learn to compassionately interact with each other, accept diversity, encourage the others to give their best and gain the self-confidence that a future writer (creative mind) needs in order to succeed. They will be motivated and encouraged to let their imagination flow during dedicated activities (for example, describing an object beyond its appearance).
