As a mother the most important for me is to feel my self confident that my little girl is in caring hands, and besides that is learning with high British standards academics. They do sports, dance, arts, and my daughter never want to go home :D...

Healthy Meals

Each day our team of dedicated chefs prepare a hot, nutritious lunch for children and teachers. We understand the importance of a healthy diet for all. Each day the students have a morning snack of a fruit salad, lunch is prepared fresh onsite each day and then afternoon snack consists of fruit also. Lunch is served family style. The children wash their hands and then sit with their friends and teachers at a table. Our family style lunch teaches table manners, encourages children to be independent and have a social and pleasurable meal.

Wellbeing Understanding

At The Casco School, we understand the need for everyone in our school to have a healthy lifestyle. This helps pupils and staff to do their best and build on their achievements. We actively promote physical and emotional health, and aim to equip pupils with the understanding and skills they need to make informed decisions about their health, both now and in the future. By championing healthy eating, healthy lifestyles and emotional health and well-being, we are aiming to continue to raise standards and improve levels of pupil achievement.

The Casco School Wellbeing Definition

  • Student wellbeing is critical. 
  • We should aim to develop in young people the resources, agility and imagination needed to live productively and sustainably. 
  • By embracing change our students will see challenges and setbacks as exciting learning opportunities.

The Wellbeing programme supports both the school’s mission and objectives, and aims to:

  • Develop transferable skills in compassionate thinking and self-management. 
  • Develop skills to resolve conflict peacefully.
  • Promote the development of physical health, ethics and social behaviour.
  • Encourage lifelong learning.
  • Provide an environment where students feel secure and welcome.
  • Promote respect for the rights of everyone.

The school encourages everyone in the school community to promote and maintain appropriate conduct, and this is characterized as behavior which:

  • Values and respects the rights of others, including the right to learn.
  • Fosters a happy, safe and secure environment.
  • Recognizes that each member of the community is unique.
  • Treats others fairly.
  • Expects members of the community to take responsibility for their actions.
  • Promotes compassion and tolerance.
  • Develops skills for peaceful resolution of conflict.
  • Values and respects others and their differences.
  • Addresses inappropriate behavior.
  • Upholds the school’s mission, objectives and ethos.

We have circle times, discussions and personal, social and emotional lessons to explore different themes such as conflict resolution, setting goals, healthy eating and healthy lifestyle habits. We work with students and families to ensure our school is a happy place for all.

Meet Ricardo!

Ricardo has just completed the Kinder class at The Casco School and is moving to First Grade.“We have lots of different classes and friends. I am good at Math and love art and music. In the school play we performed at the theater and i was Hansel.

Meet Lukas!

Lukas has just completed first grade and is excited about the big step up to second grade starting September 2020.

I have been at The Casco School since i was a baby. I can speak, read and write in English and Spanish and i’m learning a little bit of French. My favourite thing about school is the Makers Station. We have real tools and can design and make anything we like. I use a lot of recycled materials and have made new toys from them such as a pinball game.

My favourite topic from last year was Carnival of the animals. We learnt lots about their habitats, locations around the world and adaptations.”

Meet Bella!

When i grow up I want to be an artist.  I practice every day and love the classes we have with Mr Gustavo.  I like painting with acrylic best and my best piece of work was a picture of Monet’s Water Lilies.  I have it in my bedroom at home.

We have a small group in our class and I have friends in other classes too.  I like it because Miss Airam can really help me and I don’t need to rush.  I get to spend time with different kids in different classes.  

We also go to visit places on school trips.  We can walk around Casco and go to the museum or an art show.




Meet Natalia

Natalia is in 2nd grade and is new to Panama and The Casco School. She moved here with her family, and her parents choose the school due to its small class sizes and personalised learning.

“It’s different, it’s much more fun than my old school.”  

 

Meet Sofía!
