At Metropolitan School we believe that every child has a talent. Our role is to help them to discover and nurture it.
Our school clubs are an essential part of our students’ learning. They offer the opportunity to explore areas of interest and develop their skills and talents further.
Met Enrichment Clubs

Clothes Making Club
This activity will teach students about how clothes are made and will focus on the process of design. We will first look at what clothes they wear and see what kind of clothes they would like to wear. I will show them some examples of clothing that I have created from actual pieces of clothing. The students will then have to go on a journey to find out how to draw a design, measure the proper lengths, cut material that will fit the design, put the pieces together and sew them to make a new article of clothing. At the end of the activity I would like to have a small fashion show showing off all of the new types of clothing that has been created.
