Book Club: Know Your Classics

We invite young learners to join our book club this summer to explore some of the most popular classics of all times. Each session will focus on one classic novel in which the facilitators will take children on a journey to discover the main characters, plot and the storyline with theatrical readings, storytelling, audio visual aids, art and craft as well as exciting games and quizzes. Children are not expected to have read or be familiar with the classics before attending these sessions.
