Emotional Intelligence Programs

Students participate in regular Emotional Intelligence classes as a cumulative task of experiencing the utility of their strengthened cognitive capacities. These age related classes are thoughtfully and thoroughly designed to aid in the development of a keen awareness of the emotional quotient, its ability to affect the intelligence quotient and how essential this quotient is in every facet of life.

Field Trips

Several field trips are planned for the students throughout the school year. The trips are usually educational in nature, varying in subject area and content, but not always – some are just for fun. We strive for balanced programming and because the Arrowsmith Program can be quite taxing, we aim to bolster this with a ‘work hard, play hard’ approach. A few examples of our field trips include:

  •    Alpine skiing at Devil’s Elbow
  •    Spelunking at Warsaw Caves
  •    Sailing at Toronto Harbour
  •    Attending Arbour Theatre
  •    Outdoor Education at Ecology Park

 

Clubs and Activities

A wide variety of clubs are available throughout the year for students to participate in. Most of these are scheduled to run during the students’ lunch break, while others such as cross country running are scheduled for after school. These clubs are carefully created to offer exploration of the multiple intelligences. Through club participation, the students are able to express themselves as well as enjoy the expression of their fellow participants. A few examples of clubs that we offer include:

  •    Drama Club
  •    Glee Club
  •    Cross Country Running Club
  •    Chess Club
  •    Lego Club
  •    Arts and Crafts Club
  •    Dance Club
