We are a small international school based in a beautiful location on the river and just 10 minutes from the beach. We have around 50 children aged from 4-14 which are split into 5 different classes. We follow the Cambridge International curriculum for our academic classes which tend to happen in the mornings. Our afternoons are dedicated to our creative side of the curriculum; art, craft, drama, music, gardening and cooking.
Volunteers will be required to assist the teachers with their work. This may include supervising small groups of children and working one-to-one. Other tasks may be helping to keep areas of the school clean and tidy such as the library, preparing resources, helping serve lunch and helping to keep our garden tidy.
