After School Clubs

At Patmos School the teachers run several after school clubs including a Debating Club, a Music and Drama Club and an Environmental Club.  The teachers continue to provide a Sports and Games Club at the temporary school despite the lack of outside space.  There is also a Photographic Club  which is run by the Mwelu Foundation.

 

The debating club provides the opportunity for pupils to build self-confidence and helps them develop skills to express their feelings and interpret ideas. 

 

In the music and drama club, through the  medium of poetry, plays and dance the children have been learning about self-awareness and the importance of education.  This club has been instrumental in developing confidence and language skills. 

 

Claire Nasike of The Hummingbird Foundation and her colleague  Ivy, together with teacher Judith,  have been running the Environmental Club where the children are taught conservation as well as  the importance of keeping their local environment clean.  There are over 20 children who attend this club and they are now actively involved in keeping their school environment and surrounding areas clean and tidy. 

 

For the past few years children from the school have also been awarded places by the Education Department of AFEW (K) Ltd  to attend the Giraffe Centre where they learn about ecology and conservation. 

 

When the new school has been built it is hoped that Patmos School will also be able to reintroduce a computer club into the after school curriculum.
