Developing Character Skills and Competencies in our Children!
In our attempt to provide a balanced and all-around Education, we will continue to offer our students the opportunity to join and participate in several Clubs.
All Clubs are open to boys and girls and start at the beginning of each academic year.
Please contact the Office for the cost of each Club per Term.
All Clubs, which are supervised by competent adults, expose students to new skills and competencies, provide opportunities for students to take part in leagues and competitions, develop self-esteem and a sense of self-worth and provide an opportunity for parents to share in their child’s interests.
Club fees are spent in the following ways: – coaching, supervision, materials, equipment, certificates, awards, and club celebrations
THE DANCE ACADEMY
Maria Regina Grade School offers certification under the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) in both Classical Ballet and Modern Theatre dance.
The ISTD is one of the world’s leading dance examination boards. From Ballet to Ballroom, they have 11 dance faculties covering theatre, dancesport and social dance.
The examination structure of the ISTD is designed to cater equally to those who wish to progress to making dance their profession, either as a performer or a dance teacher, or for those pursuing dance purely as a leisure activity.
Maria Regina Grade School has been entering students in Classical Ballet examinations since 2015. In 2018, we began entering students in the Modern Theatre dance.
LEGION OF MARY
Date & Time – Tuesdays 12:00 noon to 12:40 p.m.
Venue – Chapel (Prayer Room)
Club Leader – Mrs. V. Govia
In keeping with the ethos of the Founder, Frank Duff, and his ministry of personal contact or friendship, our legionaries seek to be a visible expression and instrument of Mary’s love for everyone.
Meetings are held weekly in our chapel. Here, our legionaries pray the rosary and discuss the good deeds done over the past week. These good deeds include helping friends at school, assisting with chores at home, and spending time with older relatives and younger siblings.
Once a year, they attend the Acies Ceremony, the central and annual function of the Legion, and take part in the annual Corpus Christi Walk as well as the Poor Man’s Dinner.
