How would you describe the “Childhood Experience?"

“Learning in an environment that actualizes the human potential; unearthing and fostering cognitive, physical and spiritual well-being.” (Claudia Landley, Former Head Girl 2011-2012)

While our primary task at Holy Childhood is that of teaching and learning, the experience is both exceptional and unique. As a Christian institution, we observe the liturgical seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter. These are observed in our worship, on special religious occasions and in our use of religious symbols and rituals.

We learn the value of stewardship and generosity through the observance of Charity Days (every Tuesday) and engagement in community outreach projects. Student leadership and responsibility along with social skills are honed and developed through participation in various Clubs and Societies, Student Council, Sports and the Arts.

Our student leaders include our Head Girl along with her Executive Body; Senior Prefects (Sixth Form) who act as Peer Mentors; Prefects (Grade 11); Sub-Prefects (Grade 10), Student Councilors (all Grades), and Class Monitresses (all Grades). Our House and Sports Captains as well as the executive bodies of our Clubs and Societies also add to our cadre of student leaders.

Special events throughout each academic year contribute to the exciting and awesome spirit of adventure, challenge and reward which embody the “Childhood Experience.”
