Social Events and Games

There are two schools of thought. One suggests that playing and taking part in games has no place in education and that only by studying we can improve our lives. The second school of thought which we subscribe to is, that playing and involvement in games are an important part of learning. Through play and game, we can also improve our academic achievements

For these reasons, we have now introduced a “games day” on Fridays where we plan and organize educational games for the children to learn, understand the conditions of the games and develop tactics in order to succeed. We believe understanding the conditions and developing a strategy is no different to reading a question carefully and then planning a suitable answer before tackling a problem.

The games have proved to be very attractive and the children do come and participate. For the organizers it is a pleasure to watch the children change their behavior from plunging into the games to stopping, thinking and planning before they act.
