The benefits of an all-rounded education for every child

It’s a discernable fact that every child in this world is unique, and a likely inference from this reality is that every child has a different potential, and therefore deserves an individual personalized education.  When a school provides an all-rounded education it addresses this situation and offers each student the opportunity to achieve success, rewards and happiness.

An all-rounded education is a holistic approach to teaching and learning that encompasses so much more than the core academic subjects of a traditional schooling approach. When immersed in an all-rounded education children take lessons in sports, music, arts, culture, global issues and technology; and they also learn how to lead happy, healthy and successful lives.

Every child is good at some subjects or activities in life – and an all round education allows each student to excel in the areas where they can progress and flourish. These results lead to feelings of wellbeing and a positivity in children to want to succeed in other areas of their lives.

An education system that encompasses a well-rounded, balanced education is one that produces active and productive global citizens who are globally-aware and engaged 21st century citizens.
