What the children think
We thought it would be nice to share with you some comments from the children here at Samakee.
“The MakerSpace is a place where I can be creative and use my imagination in a real way.” – Ming Middle School.
“We go on adventurous Residential Trips. We feel confident about staying away from home because in Year 3 we go for 1 night and then we build up to 4 nights in Year 6.” – Jump 7yrs.
“Although St. Andrews Samakee might not be as gigantic as a football stadium, students and teachers here are very kind. Gratifyingly, this school has helped me improve in English, Maths and Science. When it is the start of the week I am very excited; I know my friends are waiting for me.” – Phunwa Upper School.
“I think that school is a great place to learn. Every day when I come to school, I always feel excited to talk to my friends and play. There are always fun activities to do whether it is in class or at break.” -Mola Upper School
“In my opinion, being in this school means a lot to me because I can be myself and I can make a lot of friends. This place almost feels like home because everyone here, especially the teachers, are trying to help you, support you and make you feel comfortable.” -Atom Upper School
“I enjoy doing Clubs because you get to try and learn different things other than what we do in class. I also like Maths Enterprise Day because I like selling stuff and making money with my friends.” – Neila Middle School.
“The toys at our school are outstanding!” – William First School.
“The best thing about school is my friends.” – Andrew First School.
“Samakee is a tight-knit family of understanding, kindness and courtesy; a multi-coloured bar of chocolate with people from all different cultures and backgrounds, all with their own stories to share, and a shelter from all the threats, dangers and… ‘messed-upness’ of the outside world” – Chino Upper School.
“Upper school is friendly and small compared to other schools, which means everyone knows everyone! I enjoy the classes, as they involve more than just learning, they include experiences, and since the class sizes are so small, teachers are focused on every single individual.” – Mayme Upper School.
