Besides the fun of creating masterpieces of their own, children derive many important benefits from art & craft activities.
  • Drawing, colouring and cutting shapes strengthens fine motor coordination and improves concentration. This becomes important in an academic setting.
  • While waiting for the paint and glue to dry, your child learns self-control and patience.
  • Completing crafts successfully gives them a sense of achievement and boosts self-esteem.
COSMOTOTS-iqd organises art & craft sessions one Saturday a month, from 10am – 12pm.

Storytelling plays an important role in a child’s intellectual, emotional and social development. It is a platform to introduce new vocabulary, animals, shapes, colours, numbers in an engaging and meaningful manner. Stories also open up opportunities to talk about caring for others, learning to share, having good manners or dealing with difficult situations.
COSMOTOTS-iqd organises storytelling sessions one Saturday a month, from 10am – 12pm.
Suitable for ages 4 to 6

Our Alumni – What Iqbal Says…

posted in: Testimonials | 0

Iqbal

I’m currently an editor at Cilisos, which is a news website based in Kelana Jaya. I manage their university arm, TahanUni, where we publish content relevant to student life on campus.

I started the position in January of this year, having left my previous investments job with Khazanah Nasional at the end of last. Prior to Khazanah, I was a Parliamentary Researcher with the Democratic Action Party, which was my first job after graduating in Law and International Relations from the University of Edinburgh

I was a horrible student when in school – a C student at best but more likely a dropout-in- waiting. I hated school and everything connected to it.

Halfway through my journey as a primary school student, I was resigned to believe that the problem was with me and that I was incapable of learning. That is, until I was enrolled in COSMOTOTS-iqd when I was in Standard 5.

COSMOTOTS-iqd showed me that I did like learning, I was capable of thinking, and that I could find classrooms enjoyable. Even after I left five years later, the passion and vigor COSMOTOTS-iqd instilled in me for learning propelled me through high school and university.

I am absolutely certain that I can credit COSMOTOTS-iqd for what I am today. I shall always remain thankful to my mentors/Mr Yoong for all their work with me.
