All learners use art as a means of exploring and embracing the creativity within. It acts as a medium of expressing ideas, solving problems, encourages aesthetic development and poses intellectual demands to learners. Learners are encouraged to explore a variety of materials and craft skill during school hours to explore their creative and artsy skills. The value placed on learner’s artwork may be seen in the care with which it is displayed around the school.

The Millennium Education Art Programme allows self-expression and fine motor development in learners from an early stage. Involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking and verbal skill. Learning arts and crafts have successfully proven to improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork amongst learners.

The Millennium Education believes that Music is a form of talented expression, one that must be nourished and cultivated in our learners, specially now as scientific evidence proves that an education in such skills makes better math and science learners. From the early stages, learners are encouraged to develop the skills of listening and performing, by being introduced to a variety of songs, musical instruments, sound and music. Older learners are helped to develop these skills and assisted to use music in ways related to other curriculum areas as well, in order to make a creative blend.

Musical training physically develops the part of the left side of the brain known to be involved with processing language, and can actually wire the brain’s circuits in specific ways.  Perhaps the basic reason that every child must have an education in music is that music is a part of the fabric of our society.

Schools Music Curriculum framework and implementation resources are intended to support, promote and inspire the growth of all learners as artistic learners as they journey towards becoming creative, artistically literate adults and citizens who will truly enrich their own lives and the lives of future communities.

Promotes awareness of and actions on important Social, Cultural and Humanitarian Issues

The Millennium Education Annual Activity Calendar clearly highlights and celebrates the UN action days at our schools. Special arrangement and presentations are made during morning assemblies and the school environment is transformed into a make belief environment to support the action day through art, activity, engagement and creativity.

Millennium learners are being taught that United Nations observances contribute to the achievement of the purposes of the UN Charter and promote awareness of and action on important political, social, cultural, humanitarian or human rights issues. They provide useful means for the promotion of international and national action and stimulate interest in United Nations activities and programmes. The purpose of the UN is to “preserve peace, advance justice and constitute a permanent structure for international cooperation.” In other words, the United Nations acts as a world forum to help countries work together to achieve peace and human rights.

The United Nations is an international organization founded in 1945 after the Second World War by 51 countries committed to maintaining international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations and promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights. Due to its unique international character, and the powers vested in its founding Charter, the Organization can take action on a wide range of issues, and provide a forum for its 193 Member States to express their views, through the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council and other bodies and committees.

The work of the United Nations reaches every corner of the globe. Although best known for peacekeeping, peace building, conflict prevention and humanitarian assistance, there are many other ways the United Nations and its System (specialized agencies, funds and programmes) affect our lives and make the world a better place. The Organization works on a broad range of fundamental issues, from sustainable development, environment and refugees protection, disaster relief, counter terrorism, disarmament and non-proliferation, to promoting democracy, human rights, gender equality and the advancement of women, governance, economic and social development and international health, clearing landmines, expanding food production, and more, in order to achieve its goals and coordinate efforts for a safer world for this and future generations.

Millennium learners are being taught about the four main purposes of UN which have a long lasting impact on community;

  • To keep peace throughout the world.
  • To develop friendly relations among nations.
  • To help nations work together to improve the lives of poor people, to conquer hunger, disease and illiteracy, and to encourage respect for each other’s rights and freedoms.
  • To be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations to achieve these goals.

Most important realization about the UN is the fact that this organization is a human organization, it is a group of people coming together to talk. That is the UN in its simplest, most basic form. So the celebrations of UN Action Days, we keep in mind that nothing is perfect including the UN, but that doesn’t give us the right, as a global society, to not try and achieve perfection and along with it world peace.

Our belief is that education is the most powerful force we can use to change our world. This belief drives us in the Teaching beyond Borders program to diligently work to increase access to a quality education for all children. The Millennium Education is committed to prepare educators who embrace learning from diverse perspectives, and to engaging with domestic and international partners in ways that promote understanding about educational issues, policies and practices around the world. The mission of the Office Global Outreach & School Links at Millennium Education is research, teaching, and service and focuses on: Leadership development to initiate and sustain change; Collective capacity building for system alignment; Educational coaching; International networking, engagement and policy making.

Global issues are an important part of the lives of our learners living in a world where economies are increasingly interdependent and global communication is a daily reality. Our students have access to the internet and increased opportunity to travel, watch news stories from around the world, as they develop and follow for example, international sporting events as they happen the global dimension is reflected in the attitudes and values of our students, the ethos of the School and the programmes we offer.

Promotes awareness of and actions on important Social, Cultural and Humanitarian Issues

The Millennium Education Annual Activity Calendar clearly highlights and celebrates the UN action days at our schools. Special arrangement and presentations are made during morning assemblies and the school environment is transformed into a make belief environment to support the action day through art, activity, engagement and creativity.

Millennium learners are being taught that United Nations observances contribute to the achievement of the purposes of the UN Charter and promote awareness of and action on important political, social, cultural, humanitarian or human rights issues. They provide useful means for the promotion of international and national action and stimulate interest in United Nations activities and programmes. The purpose of the UN is to “preserve peace, advance justice and constitute a permanent structure for international cooperation.” In other words, the United Nations acts as a world forum to help countries work together to achieve peace and human rights.

The United Nations is an international organization founded in 1945 after the Second World War by 51 countries committed to maintaining international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations and promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights. Due to its unique international character, and the powers vested in its founding Charter, the Organization can take action on a wide range of issues, and provide a forum for its 193 Member States to express their views, through the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council and other bodies and committees.

The work of the United Nations reaches every corner of the globe. Although best known for peacekeeping, peace building, conflict prevention and humanitarian assistance, there are many other ways the United Nations and its System (specialized agencies, funds and programmes) affect our lives and make the world a better place. The Organization works on a broad range of fundamental issues, from sustainable development, environment and refugees protection, disaster relief, counter terrorism, disarmament and non-proliferation, to promoting democracy, human rights, gender equality and the advancement of women, governance, economic and social development and international health, clearing landmines, expanding food production, and more, in order to achieve its goals and coordinate efforts for a safer world for this and future generations.

Millennium learners are being taught about the four main purposes of UN which have a long lasting impact on community;

  • To keep peace throughout the world.
  • To develop friendly relations among nations.
  • To help nations work together to improve the lives of poor people, to conquer hunger, disease and illiteracy, and to encourage respect for each other’s rights and freedoms.
  • To be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations to achieve these goals.

Most important realization about the UN is the fact that this organization is a human organization, it is a group of people coming together to talk. That is the UN in its simplest, most basic form. So the celebrations of UN Action Days, we keep in mind that nothing is perfect including the UN, but that doesn’t give us the right, as a global society, to not try and achieve perfection and along with it world peace.

Millennium Schools Sports Education Programme is including fitness, skills, movement, dance, recreation, health, games and sport plus the appropriate values and knowledge of each. It is an integral part of the total education of any child and is closely linked to other creative and learning experiences and skill acquisition. It makes a significant contribution to the all-round harmonious development of the mind and body.Physical activity is vital to the holistic development of young people, fostering their physical, social and emotional health. The benefits of sport reach beyond the impact on physical well-being and the value of the educational benefits of sport should not be under-estimated.

Objective

The objective of the Schools Physical Education and Sports Policy is to provide guidelines to schools for their development. The aim of organized physical education and sport programme is to create an environment that stimulates selected movement experiences resulting in desirable responses that contribute to the optimal development of the individual’s potentialities in all phases of life.

Impact

Regular physical activities at Millennium Education provides numerous health benefits from leaner bodies and lower blood pressure to improved mental health and cognitive functioning. It is helping  learners to gain competence and confidence in a variety of movement forms such as: aquatics, gymnastics & recreational activities. It is providing a sound framework for the design and assessment that develop the learners  motivation, fitness, cognitive, behavioural, and active lifestyle needs, and  is focusing on life-time involvement. Physical education and sports at Millennium Education  have an educational impact. Changes can be seen in motor skills development, performance and educational potential. This shows the positive relationship between being involved in physical activities and psycho social development.

The real benefits of sport involvement appear among children and youth who have experienced appropriate forms of leadership. For example, at Millennium Education  martial arts is taught with a philosophy of respect, patience, responsibility and honour were related to decreased delinquency, when compared to martial arts taught with a focus on free sparring and self-defence. Coaches and physical educators at Millennium Education  have the potential to provide strong leadership.  The learners are excited to engage in fun based physical activities and encouraged through four different fitness exercises by the Millennium Sports Education Programme. The Sports Clubs are run by student body under the supervision of Sports Managers . Immediately, after the activities everyone gathers for an assembly to rest and listen to the Sports Manager about their individual sporting experiences, the lessons they have learned in life, and give a spectacular demonstration where possible.  Our activities take place during lunch times, after school- Wednesdays Stay and Play and during the holidays too! Every learner  is welcomed and for many  we have helped spark a love of sport, or a particular sport, that previously wasn’t there. Students of Millennium Education  are more likely to be confident and ready to advance as they join their first organized team, or even as they choose up sides on the playground.
