Summer School Weekly Themes

WEEK 5 - August 12th to 17th

Indian Excursion Week

Namaste! Hold onto your hats, grab your passports and don’t forget your tickets for the very last leg of our journey where we travel by balloon, train, bike, light-aircraft and elephant across India, and with our Sherpas into the Himalayas. Kokomo will lead us into some awesome art and curry cooking sessions. We will search for treasures of the Taj Mahal. What will Kokomo find on his travels? Your child will create their own special adventure.

On Friday and Saturday we round off our regular Summer School with some wonderful wizardry and magic, and quality time spent with our beloved Harry Potter and the students of Hogwarts. Harry and his team will wow us with some spooky spell recipes, all sorts of magic in the classrooms and some Hogwarts fun and games.
