Life Skills at Milites Dei
Kaieteur News writes that ‘The public needs to be aware of the importance of Life Skills – programmes which would actually benefit the individual in self-development’ (available at http://www.kaieteurnewsonline.com/2013/10/06/the-importance-of-life-skills/).
Christopher Cascio explains that ‘Life skills are skills a child needs to develop in order to succeed in life, but are not necessarily part of any academic course curriculum. Life skills include attributes such as honesty, perseverance, resourcefulness, patience and organization’ (available at http://oureverydaylife.com/fun-lessons-teaching-life-skills-28305.html).
At Milites Dei, students participate in a variety of activities that enhances life skills. The photo above shows a bush oven that was crafted by students. When participating in this, the students need creative problem solving, team work, resourcefulness and patience to complete the task.
