Lorna Whiston Preschool and English Enrichment Centres
Discovery Camps

Discovery Camps is an initiative by the global education group A-Star Education, founded in 2016 with the mission of: “Preparing you today for a bright tomorrow.”

Besides helping students achieve academic success, A-Star Education aims to empower them with the essential skills and experiences to succeed in life.

To achieve our objectives and fulfil our mission, we have partnered with Lorna Whiston Schools to run holiday programmes during the school holidays.

Discovery Camps Mission:

To provide a supportive playground of self - exploration for all children of ages 3 - 14, so that they can discovery and enhance their unique skills, abilities, and talents, through a diverse mix of fun learning experiences.

On one hand, we nurture your child's self- discovery process and overall development, to bring out the best in him/her.

Additionally, we also assist you with our continuous inputs on it, to support you in being the best parent and caregiver that you want to be.

  • We at Discovery Camps, are thrilled to have Lorna Whiston as our partner for our English Explorers camp for kids!

    They have designed an English learning programme to spark children's natural curiosities for English learning, excite their imagination, nurture their creativity, develop their confidence and communication skills.

    We have further customised their English learning program to the needs of children in the age groups of 3-5 and 6-8, to be taught by highly experienced English Language Teachers.

    The camp classes include not only English reading and writing activities, but also speech, drama and art, to fully develop and nurture your child's reading, writing, speaking and listening skills.

    What better way for your child to improve their English, during the winter school holidays in Singapore!

    English Explorer winter camp activities:

    • Each group's and week's activities are based on a specific theme of the week for that group.

    • Think your child has the potential to be the next Leonardo Di Caprio or Angelina Jolie?
      Enrol him/her in our kids theatre and acting classes in Singapore and find out!

      In our Actor's Studio camp, children will work in teams to rehearse scripts of fun, innovative tales, and then act out the roles in a full play and performance.

      And this is not just any other camp or drama class for children!

      We have Lorna Whiston's team of highly experienced teachers leading this camp.

      Additionally, these theatre camps have a unique concept. The stories that the children have to act out are either innovative ones, or well-known tales with a surprising twist! This makes it even more fun and engaging for the participants.

      Camp activities:

      • Children work with each other to rehearse a show script throughout the week, guided gently by teachers
      • Learn all aspects of theatre: script lines, stage directions, queues and movements...ready to put up a show!
      • You can watch their performance at the end of the camp week
