Cultural and Social Activities

To maintain student involvement in their latter years at the school and to fill a learning gap for many, all senior students are involved in a compulsory Cultural Involvement Program. This program encourages boys and girls to expand their understanding and appreciation of culture in its diverse forms. The main emphasis of the program is on enjoyment and positive shared experiences.

​​Each student undertakes to participate in a group or as an individual, in at least three cultural experiences outside of their scheduled school program. Each class teacher records these activities and receives a feedback sheet from each student as they complete an obligation. Students are assisted in their selection of these activities by the Cultural Involvement Coordinator. A small budget has been established under the Cultural Involvement Co-ordinator to ensure that no student is disadvantaged through insufficient financial support.

The three cultural experiences are selected from the following range of activities:​

  • Attendance at cultural experiences in dance, drama, music, theatre, film festivals, cultural festivals and approved concerts.
  • A substantial visit to an Art Gallery, Museum or a Cultural Gallery. Attendance at one-off the recommended cultural experiences.

Each student is required to keep a log of all activities and submit a feedback sheet on each activity. All activities are recorded on formal written reports and will form part of a student’s resume.​

The Cultural Involvement Coordinator provides:

  • Guidelines for the program.
  • Reporting procedures for the program.
  • Assists individual students who may find difficulty in organizing cultural involvement.

House system and Social Impact

Through the various elements of our Social Impact Programme; Green Valley aims to help pupils think about how people really make a difference to local, national and global issues. We want to draw attention to the characteristics of those individuals and organizations whose vision, energy, compassion, dedication, and generosity are already making a difference. 

We want our pupils to be able to recognize problems and begin to identify the steps required to develop solutions and to focus on the positive impact education can have on social problems.

We are, by most definitions, privileged people. We recognize our responsibilities and hope that through the experience and awareness gained at this school we can encourage our pupils to be leaders in philanthropy and social entrepreneurship, to become the visionaries who will set the future agenda for beneficial social transformation. We have over the past twenty-seven years developed relationships with organizations working across the globe. Our international projects have enabled our children to visit the U.K. and get involved in joint projects and we hope to extend the program in the future.
