As the children grow and mature, so the challenges set become more complex. In Prep V all the children take outdoor pursuits challenges, varying each year, stretching them physically and allowing independence of thought and care for members of their team to shine through. The new academic challenge in Prep V is learning Latin. Following a course devised for Roselyon School and exclusive to our pupils, the children learn the basics of the language whilst studying classical civilization.
With continued guidance from a form teacher and subject specialists, the children learn to become more independent in their learning and in their personal responsibility, taking on tasks as they prove themselves ready and striving to do their best.
Throughout the school fundraising for charity is encouraged but by Prep V the children are expected to learn about and understand the reasons why charities should be supported. Roselyon supports the Ebenezer Childcare Project in Livingstone, Zambia and in Prep V the children spend time understanding the different culture of this village and learning why it is important to share what we have.
In Prep V the children select the school they will attend when they leave Roselyon. Families are encouraged to visit a wide variety of schools to help them understand the opportunities offered in the different senior schools. Parents are then offered an opportunity to meet with the Head and key staff members to discuss their decision, in order that preparations for a smooth transition in due course can be made.
Prep V children grow in maturity and learn much about themselves and other children, both within the school and across the world.
