Informal Jewish Education

KTC recognises the vital impact that Informal Jewish education has in our school by complementing and enhancing formal academic instruction. In line with the vision of the school to grow minds and nurture character guided by the torah we embrace experiential learning, engaging students in interactive and dynamic activities that foster a deep connection to Jewish culture, Torah values, and traditions.

By incorporating informal Jewish education into the school curriculum, students are exposed to a diverse range of experiences, such as excursions, interactive workshops, Yom Tov celebrations, and community service projects. These activities create a vibrant and immersive environment where students can explore Jewish identity, history, and ethical principles in a hands-on manner.

The effectiveness of informal Jewish education lies in its ability to instill a sense of pride, belonging, and commitment to authentic Torah values and way of life, while also nurturing critical thinking, creativity, and social skills. By weaving informal education seamlessly into the fabric of school life, students develop a holistic understanding and love of Yiddishkeit that extends beyond textbooks and exams, ultimately shaping their personal and communal identities in profound ways.
