About the Scholarly Book Club

Welcome to the Scholarly Book Club, where literature comes alive and young minds are shaped into discerning readers and critical thinkers.

This program is meticulously crafted to cater to both Junior (Year 3 – Year 4) and Senior (Year 5 – Year 6) primary school students, ensuring that every participant is met at their level of understanding and curiosity.

Senior Book Club: Unraveling the BBC Top 100 with Mastery!

For our older enthusiasts, we embark on a profound exploration of the BBC’s Top 100 Books. This journey is not just about reading; it’s about understanding the societal, political, and personal implications of each masterpiece.

From Orwell’s haunting vision of the future in “1984” to Austen’s sharp critique of societal norms in “Pride and Prejudice”, we delve deep into the themes that shape our world today.

Our seniors will also time-travel through literary eras, understanding the context and significance of each period, from the Classical to the Postmodern.

With advanced vocabulary acquisition methods, we ensure that our students not only read but also articulate their thoughts with eloquence and precision.

Furthermore, our interactive assignments challenge them to think outside the box, fostering creativity and a deeper understanding of the material.

TIMETABLE: 12th October - 14th December

Junior Book Club: Discovering Timeless Tales for Tomorrow's Leaders!

For our younger readers, the journey is equally enchanting but tailored to their budding intellect and imagination.

We introduce them to timeless tales like “The Alchemist”, “The Little Prince”, and “Charlotte’s Web”, each chosen for its profound yet age-appropriate lessons.

Our juniors will voyage through fantastical worlds and historical settings, learning valuable life lessons along the way.

With our vibrant vocabulary adventures, we ensure that language learning becomes a delightful game rather than a tedious task. Our modern connections with timeless tales make every story relevant, ensuring that our young readers see the magic of literature in their everyday lives.

TIMETABLE: 13th October - 15th December

Both our senior and junior programs emphasize active engagement with literature. We believe that stories are not just to be read but lived, analyzed, and created. Our assignments challenge students to think, imagine, and craft, turning them from passive readers to active literary enthusiasts.
