Mentoring

Our teachers at Canterbury Schools are dedicated to the success of our children. All teaching and non teaching staff work together to ensure our students are monitored and catered for appropriately. Our students are encouraged to be self motivated and to attain the best they possibly can.

In the Primary School (Junior School), the class teachers are responsible for the general moral monitoring and academic excellence of the pupils. In High School however, specific mentors are assigned to the students. This helps in facilitating the progress of the students while imbibing our school culture and values.


Extra-Curricular Activities

Outside of Academia, Canterbury is also involved in a number of extra curricular activities including our weekly school club activities including Art & Craft, Jets Club, Ballet, Dancing, Press Club, Literary & Debating and the Home Makers Club, Inter- class, Inter-School, State and National Competitions.

In addition, the school has held its annual Inter-House Sports Competition for the Junior and High school every February and November respectively.
