In the year 2000, San Andrea School was one of the first schools to launch the Extra-Curricular Programme. The Extra-Curricular was a dynamic idea that offered a solution to several working parents/guardians who were coming across challenging situations whilst trying to juggle work, their child/rens’ schooling and extra-curricular activities.
San Andrea School, always sensitive to the well-being of all its stakeholders, put into action a programme wherein play, sports, healthy eating, homework club and catechism classes were integrated. San Andrea School is proud to be the first school in Malta to have offered such a holistic programme, while also being the first school on the Island to actually hold fully qualified catechism classes on its own premises. These classes have been officially authorised by the Commission for Religious Doctrine within the Archbishop’s Curia.
Today the department is proud to say that over 275 students form part of this programme with various activities to choose from.
The programme incorporates the child’s activities “under one roof” at school, with sports sessions and/or other activities taking place in our own facilities. The sessions are conducted by various professionals from different sectors of sports and activities, as one can see in this catalogue.
At 15:00 the students will go for their chosen session. This session will then be followed by a specially prepared healthy snack, in-keeping with the school’s nutritional policy. During this time, the students have time to socialise and regenerate for the second part. Supervision will be provided throughout the whole programme.
|14:35 to 15:00||Attendance and grouping|
|15:00 to 16:00||Session 1|
|16:00 to 16:30||Break & Healthy snack|
|16:30 to 17:30||Session 2|
The catalogue that follows allows the parents/guardians/children to choose any activity they desire. Parents/Guardians can opt to end the extra-curricular day at 16:00 or 17:30. Certain activities are scheduled for a double session (ending at 17:30) by default, due to the nature of the curricular involved.
We proudly present our newly, overhauled San Andrea Extra-Curricular Programme and our Fun Learning Opportunities Programme, with various new activities catering for different age groups.
We are pleased to inform you that this year for the first time, we are launching the FLO – Fun Learning Opportunities Programme as a pilot project, starting off with the Nursery and Grade 1 children.
