This Lego club is meant to teach children that their imagination has no limits and how they can incorporate that into real life creations using Legos. Throughout the course we will teach them to how to visualize the object and create it as it is in their head. We aim is to inspire these children to create extravagant and never before seen thing in contrast to the usual cliché creations. We want these children to think for themselves and create original “off the bat ideas”, this is what will set them apart from other people in the future.
All children have the capacity to create amazing objects, especially at the ages of 5-10 this is when the brain is most free of any impure ideas and the imagination is let loose and is wild. This class isn’t meant to constrict their thoughts and make them follow the instructions but to expand their imagination even further and forever keep their vivid imagination.

Students to bring some photos to include in the projects. This activity will require a fee of 5 Rials to cover the cost of materials.
Supporting the Classroom
Chess is a classic game of strategy, invented more than 1500 years ago in India. Legend has it that the ruler of India asked his wise men to devise a way to teach the children of the royal family to become better thinkers and better generals on the battlefield. Chess was the result. The Chess Club meets once per week.
Juggling Multiple Considerations Simultaneously
First Aid :
Science Club :
In the Gr 2 Science Club our aim is to give students a fun time at the end of the day within a science context. Over the course of the activity we explore themes of light, electricity, cells and mixtures. To do this we use a range of equipment (with the able assistance of a number of volunteer secondary students) like light boxes, the Van de Graaff-generator, simple circuit components and microscopes. On the last week of the session we invite in parents so our budding scientists can showcase their knowledge – so bookmark this date now!

Year Long Activities
Elementary Tech-Team :
Student Council :
The Elementary Student Council (ESC) is the voice of the students in the Elementary at ABA. The ESC encourages communication and idea sharing among students as well as promoting student involvement within the school and its community. We also encourage commitment and responsibility. We carry out many activities each year including fundraisers such as bake sales and movie nights as well as organizing spirit days and other fun activities. Funds raised go to ‘in school’ initiatives as well as local charities. The ESC runs entirely based on students' ideas and opinions supported by the teacher facilitators.
Eco Rangers :
Eco-rangers involves over 40 students from Grade 2-5. The main objective is to act as environmental ambassadors for ABA Elementary, both by supporting and creating environmental initiatives. Eco-rangers runs during the school day at a break time once a week. The students involved will be nominated by their classmates much like Student Council. The students involved will change 4 times a year to coincide with after school activities.
A beginner ukulele program. Students will learn notes, chords and strumming patterns. They will put this new learning to practice when learning to play songs. The ukulele is a great instrument for beginner musicians and a great stepping stone towards guitar and other string instruments.
