HOBBIES benefit children in many ways. They give them an opportunity to express themselves and lead them to discover themselves and build self-esteem. They are also great educational tools.

Our annual New Hanover Prep Hobby Day is aimed at introducing children to a range of interesting hobbies and they are always encouraged to try something new. Hobbies this year included outdoor fishing, hiking, cycling and graffiti designing using spray paint as well as indoor hobbies such as baking, puppet making, cartoon drawing, video editing, paper folding, experimenting with science, playing squash and making music on computers.

Hobbies are rewarding and enriching parts of our lives. They teach children to set and achieve goals, solve problems and make decisions. They can also set the course for what children become later in life as they often turn into lifelong interests or careers.
