More about the school...
In the Garden with Leroy Clarke Touring Leroy Clarke's Studio
Situated in a valley in the Morvant district in Trinidad and Tobago, the Nubian School is an example of what can be done by ordinary people committed to improving their own social situation.
This School was first established by Mrs. Susan Edwards and later on supported by Self Empowerment Learning Fraternity.
At present the school does not receive government assistance and we have not appealed for such aid. Parents and other community members contribute time and money towards the development of the school.
While the school is based in a building in the community, much of the tutoring takes place in different community environments to heighten the experiences of the students and to keep the learning process exciting.
The school incorporates all available world expressions and experiences into the social program. The Internet helps bring views and ideas not readily available in schoolbooks into the classroom.
Agriculture, historical awareness and social development are the foundation pillars for all other forms of academic tuition.
Adults in the community are encouraged to use the facilities available in the school to increase their own awareness. Past pupils regularly return for assistance as the school intends to remain a nucleus for development for all age groups. Historical and other social awareness books and lectures are available for both adults and children.
Soon we will be posting a list of our schoolbooks and a schedule of weekly activities to assist parents who are doing home tutoring.
