St Cristofer’s fun writing, counting & inventing so no one cares it’s the summer holiday!


For Diana summer school is fun 

St Cristofer’s care programme boast a family-like close-knit group of children, who are very proud of their achievements as lots of hard work and sacrifices stand behind each registered success. The children usually don’t care if others like to spend all day long outside and play, they are keen on learning through play and fun-filled activities that enhance their creativity, bonding and levels of communication. Learning challenges posed by their tutors on the spot keep; them engaged and entertained, the two ‘e’s that transform their days into memorable experiences.

The team use games and books donated by  friends and supporters in varied ways and as methods of learning new things, understanding the fascinating world that surrounds us together with its wonders by posing questions where information is not clear, inviting the kids to think for themselves and not taking what they see or hear for granted. Presentations are usually followed by a flow of questions why? How come? And where do these come from? and other all-encompassing queries and the tutors usually do their best to offer plausible answers and clear explanations.

Broad smiles brighten the kid’s faces when all exercises are completed. For instance, although Diana barely started school she is already a maths ace. At the beginning of her school adventure, she used to write her name backwards, but now she can solve complex calculations by mental arithmetic first, and then write answers on the paper. She is witty and quick, never tired nor daunted by the new info coming her way. And most importantly, she is an example for her peers, an all too rare model and star of our group’s competitions.

Another important aspect of the Centre’s summer creative workshops is the fact that the kids like to help each other and usually take on peer tutor roles, replicating the teachers they like to listen to in school during their classes. They are patient, enthusiastic, attentive, understanding, and most of all, caring individuals. It is always a joy to spend a day in their company and to be able, as a tutor, to organise incredible activities with gifted if disadvantaged children who deserve a chance. Truly, that gift keeps on giving. Nobody seems to care it’s the summer holiday when there are so many things to plan , learn and experience, to invent, to play and to have fun.
