PYP

CO-CURRICULARS

Primary Years Programme

At Aspengrove School, our staff strive to offer a wide variety of extra-curricular experiences for all ages, including our Primary Years Programme students!

Please note the programs listed below do not run all year-round. Many will run only for 6-8 weeks.

TheatreSports

Come and join Ms. Baird for an introduction to the enjoyable, engaging, and downright hilarious games of Theatresports.

Does your child like acting? Do they adore make-believe? Do they sometimes like to pretend they are a ferocious velociraptor, a totally tubular surfer from Australia, or even … a teacher? Maybe they like to sing and practice different voices? If so, Theatresports is the club for them. In Theatresports your child will learn to use their quick thinking skills, imagination, and of course, develop some cool tricks for improvisation!
