AT New Hanover Prep we realise that creativity is as natural and necessary for children as fresh air and sunshine. This year every class has set aside a lesson each week to encourage critical and creative thinking. By focusing on exposing our children to creative experiences, we give them the gift of a rich and memorable childhood while laying the foundation for a lifetime of creative expression.

Last week the Grade 3 pupils constructed a robot or rocket from junk to enrich their theme work on Space. The children then designed an advert to encourage people to buy their construction.Their creativity was encouraged to develop from their experiences with the process, rather than concern for the finished product. Each article made was unique and original, proving that creativity is not about doing something better than others, it is about thinking, exploring, discovering, and imagining.
