OFS Enrichment Program

Here at Overseas Family School, we believe that no one is too old to learn something new. We welcome all parents and students to enrol in our enrichment program activities.

With the enrichment program, you are constantly learning a new skill, which will either benefit your life journey now or in the future.

Activities

Clay Making

Clay making encourages out-of-the-box thinking and enables children to explore their creative side. This right brained tactile activity enables children to develop their fine motor skills and 3-D visualisation ability. It is fun and encourages creative movement in children. Through clay modelling, children harness their ability to create. In attending regular pottery making sessions, the child will develop a stronger attention span and be able to focus and concentrate better as well as persevere in completing their project from beginning to end. The pottery curriculum is unique as it breaks the paradigm of traditional pottery making to focus on creativity-development and learning outcomes.
