6 ACTIVITIES THAT ARE FUN YET EDUCATIONAL THIS HOLIDAY!

With the last major exam of the year finishing soon, many students would be heaving a sigh of relief as well as anticipating for the December holidays to come.

Parents alike must be feeling relief that they can finally take a breather while changing the focus on bonding and enjoying with the family again.

As much as a holiday should be a period of fun and excitement, many parents would have a nagging feeling at the back of their head that their child should continue to be revising as well.

This is especially so for students who did not do very well for their exams and therefore making holiday period a crucial time to catch up on foundational works.

Another group of students who might be facing this situation would be students transitioning for the following year, for example from kindergarten to primary 1. There will definitely be fear about not being able to adapt or cope with the new curriculum.

However, the thought of having to go for tuition classes during the holidays is dreaded by most students.

To make the concept of learning fun and enjoyable, and at the same time to ensure that your child does not lose the momentum of learning, holiday programs are the best of both worlds.
