Despite many enquiries from parents, it took us a long time to develop and launch our P1 and P2 English enrichment programme. The reason was this. If we had to run a course for lower primary children, it was important for The Schooling Society to pioneer a unique and unusual English writing programme. It was critical for us to be able to inspire normally reluctant writers.
Art & Design
We decorated our ceilings with paper cranes for 2 reasons:
- To lighten the mood and to delight the children
- To celebrate the significance of origami cranes
While interior design has traditionally played a key role in settings such as hotels, homes as well as food and beverage outlets, educational centres and indeed schools have generally been more conservative. Whilst owners of kindergartens and preschools may favour bright primary colour palettes, interior designers themselves may prefer more adult like designs and materials.
At The Schooling Society, the challenge was to merge an interior design that pleases us yet, at the same time, have a fun and quirky appeal that appeals to both parents and students.
