Nurturing the power of attention
At Erasmus Primary School, the power of attention is recognised as the master key to the development of a child. Focused attention brings stillness, intelligence, happiness, courage and every virtue that is needed for the discovery and development of a child’s talent – be it academic, artistic, physical or emotional. Simple mindfulness exercises are used to help focus the mind and enable the child to develop an inner quiet, strength and steadiness. They are then able to attend to the task at hand with greater application.
Offering an ambitious and creative curriculum
An Erasmus education offers an ambitious and creative curriculum, designed to give each pupil the opportunity to thrive and flourish according to his or her own unique talents. Erasmus has an academic focus with consistently high academic results and a low student/teacher ratio. They provide a thorough, systematic grounding in Literacy and Numeracy. Other subjects include Philosophy, Thinking and Learning, Health & Physical Education, Science, History and Geography. They take a classical approach to languages including studies in Sanskrit and Latin. A diverse palette of visual and performing arts programs includes Art, Music, Drama, Dance and activities such as Needlework and Woodwork. These pursuits greatly assist in the development of intellectual and cognitive skills, self-expression and fine and gross motor skills.
