Kendellhurst Academy http://www.kendellhurst.com/ in Mississauga, Ontario, is a private school that provides a comprehensive and enriched grade school curriculum http://www.kendellhurst.com/gradeschool/curriculum_overview.shtml that covers everything from language arts to environmental studies to an advanced mathematics and computer studies/coding program. More importantly, the faculty knows that programs outside the classroom can be beneficial, too.
These extracurricular activities http://www.kendellhurst.com/gradeschool/extracurricularactivities.shtml allow your child to develop intellectually and physically, while building confidence and friendships. There are number of programs to choose from, depending on what interests your child seems to gravitate towards.
For example, you can enrol your child in Rock Band Choir and let them sing, dance and act their way to success. In fact, musical theatre programs are beneficial because they require teamwork, concentration and memory skills, plus your child gets the physical benefits of moving around on stage. Rock Band Choir productions become part of Kendellhurst's winter and end-of-year routines, encouraging kids to perform in front of live audiences and peers.
Those with artistic flair who aren't aiming for the stage can choose the Arts and Crafts Club, which fosters imagination, creativity and enthusiasm. Creativity can also be applied in the Lego Engineers and Lego Robotics program, where children make amazing things with Lego by collaborating with other participants.
Of course, you may have a child who excels in athletics and wants to take their game to the next level. For them, there's the Sports Club, which includes soccer, floor hockey and track and field to build motor skills and improve physical fitness. There's even a Running Club that helps your child go the distance!
