Education department
There are over 300 children between the ages of four and eighteen years old currently enrolled in the education programme, which makes it the largest department in SKIP. We aim to maintain an exciting, stimulating and engaging learning environment. Our aim is not to replace the local education system, but rather supplement it. Following a curriculum designed especially for the children at SKIP, we provide classes in subjects such as reading comprehension, Maths and English.
Creative Arts Programme
The SKIP creative arts programme involves 9 primary groups between the ages of 5 and 13 years and 6 secondary groups between 13 and 17 years. For many of the participants these classes are the first exposure to art. The main goal of the program is to encourage these students to find their voice and express their feelings freely through a variety of mediums. We are seeking to facilitate personal development for our students through art, dance, theatre, song, games, and other types of creative expression. In addition, the Creative Arts leader will host drama workshops for secondary students on a regular basis, which will culminate in a small production.
If you do not feel you have enough experience, or strong enough language skills to run the arts programme, you can still be involved as a teaching assistant, feel free to get in touch and ask for more information.
