Virtual After-School Clubs

 

Our after-school enrichment clubs offer virtual sessions throughout the year for students interested in engaging with additional subject areas. Classes will vary from session to session and will incorporate a variety of options such as the arts, athletics and science. Examples include (but are not limited to) chess, tennis, swimming, coding, Lego engineering, photography, creative writing, drama and music. The cost of the after school clubs vary (see below).

In line with the OHDS educational philosophy, our focus is on the whole child, which is why we offer students a variety of programming to choose from – engaging all parts of their creative minds.

There are no after-school school clubs on Fridays or when there is a holiday. Please check our calendar for these dates.

Most important, we will get dirty, make ice cream/salad/cheese and touch cool things like worms and tools!  Naama Sadan is a certified permaculture designer, she grows plants at home, and with students over the last 9 years.

In this class, we sometimes use tools such as knives and shovel, so parents should judge if this class is right for their child. We will use what you have at home mostly, but not always. A list of garden tools and food ingredients will be sent by email. Capped at 20 students; minimum 6 to run.
