HUB CLUB

 

Hub Club offers children an opportunity to explore new activities or to further pursue an existing interest in more depth.

 

As part of Hub Club, children can take up one or more of the following activities

 

Chess
  • Long the game of Kings and Princes; chess is enjoyed today by millions of people, young and old, male and female. When we talk about chess players, we often define them as geniuses, though indeed, the game is accessible for everyone. 

  • The rules are very simple. Indeed, the basic rules are easily understandable, but chess strategies are intricate and exciting. A day to learn, a lifetime to master!

  • Even children can succeed, and by so doing, their self-image and self-confidence takes a huge leap forward. Scholastic tournaments provide a path to trophies, to higher and higher ratings, and even a competitive edge when applying to colleges.

  • Chess helps young and old to organize their thoughts, to plan strategically, and to make better life decisions, to consider their alternatives more carefully, and to approach life more thoughtfully and calmly.

  • Chess also helps in accepting and handling victories and defeats with grace.

  • Regular chess play improves memory and mental calculation. It encourages attention to detail. And the game itself, by its very foundation, encourages sportsmanship and pride in one's conduct.

 

Robotics

Robotics is a concrete and tangible way to build and strengthen cognitive development, as well as other academic areas such as mathematics, engineering, communication skills, strategic and goal-oriented thinking.

 

Fun Science Experiment

Science is the study of the world around us. The world around us is fascinating and learning about it can be fun and interesting for children.

 

Creative Art Works

Research indicates that a child who is exposed to the world of Arts acquires a special ability to be creative, be original, discover, and innovate.

 

Board games

Games help the children develop social skills like communicating verbally, sharing, taking turns. Board games build the ability to focus and lengthen child’s attention span by encouraging the completion of an exciting game. They learn number and shape recognition, grouping, counting, visual perception and eye-hand coordination.

 

Book club

Book clubs are a wonderful way to engage students and significantly expand their horizons beyond academics. Giving students the opportunity to share their love of books and reading, helps to create a strong reading culture at their school.  Book Clubs foster positive reading behavior and provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate the breadth of knowledge, to the larger School Community.

 

Transforming objects

Transforming boxes into ‘something that flies’ or ‘into a mask’. This is great for understanding the world in which we live, how things are made, inculcate environmental awareness, art/design, engineering etc.
