THE JUNIOR PREP’S ‘DAY OF EXPLORATION’

Girls Prep  April 09, 2018 | Academics | Heather Kissack

The St Peter’s JP Department held a ‘Day of Exploration’ on Thursday, 29 March.

This awareness that play matters, is not new. However, with the increasing pressure on schools to educate for a growing technological and ever-changing world, as well as the need to develop 21st Century skills, the concept of play has been seen as a luxury that children don’t have time for. Play’s positive contribution to learning is not a new realisation, but at St Peter’s we have become increasingly aware of the impact of play on learning.
