To us, outdoor education and activities are an essential part of our academic programme.
The sporting and cultural program is well catered for. As the formal structure of the classroom strives to guide students “up the steep hill of knowledge”, so the extra-curricular activities bring together pupils with common objectives, and fulfils the need to express unique personalities.
For the sporting activities Baobab provides excellent facilities, including an eight lane 25m swimming pool and an extensive playing field which caters for all sporting activities. Physical activity is a challenge to young minds and bodies in healthy competition, providing an arena where skills are learnt, interests are nurtured and confidence is gained.
Participation in extra curricular activities is expected of all students and in particular each Key Stage 1 child should attend a minimum of 1 activity per week and Key Stage 2 children a minimum of 2 activities per week, 1 of which should be a physical activity.
In all areas of the programme we strongly encourage the attributes of self-control, discipline and tenacity. Emphasis is always placed on integrity, good conduct and sportsmanship.
