SHORT TERM CLASS
Goa is a magical place to visit, and South Goa even more so, a place with so much to discover, a place that everyone sees and experiences through their own eyes. And we, at RiverSide, want every child to have the opportunity to realise their own magical vision of Goa.
So, from November until March we offer children the space and time to fashion their own wonderful moments to make their time in South Goa an unforgettable one, full of astonishing nature, amazing new people and beautiful learning experiences. This class is offered to children aged between 6 and 12 years old and you are welcome to sign up for anything from 1 week upwards, there are no limits, it is up to you and your child!
We believe that all children respond to a warm , friendly and positive child led environment which we have fully recognised and incorporated into the many craft and art activities, Our World projects on diverse civilisations and environments, trips to areas of outstanding cultural, archaeological and natural beauty, nature trails and animal rescue centres.
There will be 8 weekly themes which are: survival skills; jungle living; Indian Gods; food and farming; life on the sea; history of Goa; this sporting nation and love nature.
RiverSide is fortunate to have so much to do and see nearby but we also recognise that some children may need to complete assignments from their home country so there are specific sessions set aside for self-study that are overseen by qualified teachers.
Apart from the fun, engaging activities that can be seen in the sample timetables, all children are provided with fruit and water breaks and a fully balanced nutritious vegetarian meal made on site. Our short term students have break and lunch in the same area and at the same time as the rest of the River House family and are welcome to join the extra-curricular activities and events that happen all over the nearby areas of Patnem, Palolem, Agonda and Rajbag.
