About the Division ( Cycle I)

Welcome to Cycle One at OBK College; grades 1, 2, and 3. In this cycle, classes start at 7:30 a.m. and end at 2:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. On Thursdays and Saturdays, classes end at 1:45p.m. Classes are divided into 6/7 periods separated by 2 recesses of 20 minutes each.

In Cycle One we are committed to providing a caring educational program that nurtures and inspires our child to reach high level of personal success. Cycle one has specific goals that make this phase a critical component of the educational system as a whole. It is the basic foundation of developing the learners' skills and fulfilling their needs. It provides children with safe environments to grow in, as well as equipping them with motivation and skills that enable them to handle individual circumstances.

 In cycle one, we strive not to only challenge, but also support our students in their social, emotional, academic, and physical growth. Our focus is truly on the development of the whole child and a lot of time is dedicated to give learners the opportunity to grasp the basic needs of education.

We depend on activities inside and outside the classroom. The activities are taught according to the curriculum and to the learners' needs. Moreover, the weekly timetable includes at least one activity in special fields such as physical education, music, computer skills, and arts. We should not forget the interactive classes that take place in the audiovisual room where kids use the interactive board.

Extra-curricular activities play an important part in the cycle as they help to develop the whole student. Children learn useful new skills from their chosen activity, and integrate these activities into their everyday school lives. They learn time management, critical thinking, teamwork, and social skills.

Parents' meetings are held on regular basis with the administration and the classroom teachers to keep the parents informed about the progress of their children.

Cycle one is a venture that pays well to ensure that most of the learners' needs are met.

Dear parents, your jewels are in the right caring hands.
