After School Program Brampton

Write on Q is an after school program that focuses on providing enriched language education for elementary and secondary school students in the Brampton area.

This program is designed to work as a supplement to the Ontario public school curriculum. These enrichment classes look to build on the foundation delivered by the public school system, and to give students an advantage by cultivating important life skills.

Some of the areas of focus include:

  • Writing
  • Planning and organizing

Strong writing and speaking skills are essential to effective communication. These skills are what are known as “soft skills” in the employment world.

These “soft skills” are incredibly important to employers world wide. It is often said that “soft skills” cannot be taught, you either have them or you don’t. This is not true.

These skills can absolutely be taught, and the earlier you get exposed to them, the better.

Who is this after school program for?

This program is ideal for students, grade 3 to 10, located in the Brampton and Mississauga area. Getting extra help with these critical communication skills at an early age, can make a huge difference later in life.

After School Program Brampton

The after school program at Write on Q can benefit your child in many different ways.

Aside from the tangible areas of improvement like reading, writing, and speaking, students will also develop such skills as:

  • Critical thinking
  • Organization
  • Personal interaction

Critical Thinking

Critical thinking is basically the ability to think clearly and rationally about something. It’s all about taking in the relevant information, and deciding what is most important an why.

This a tremendously useful skill, that is shockingly underdeveloped in a lot of students today.

One way to get better at critical thinking is to put it to work. Write on Q offers many activities that will give students a chance to practice and develop critical thinking skills.

Organization

Good organizational skills are absolutely essential for good writing. A piece of writing without planning and preparation will not be easy to follow or enjoyable to read. The goal is to create an informative and pleasurable experience for the reader.

Good planning and organization is important to so many aspects of life. Being well prepared usually means better results with less stress.

Personal Interaction

The Write on Q after school program encourages effective communication at all levels. Written communication is certainly important, but students will also learn to present their ideas verbally to the class in a calm and concise manner.

Students will also be editing each others’ writing, so they will learn how to be critical with being offensive.
