In line with our ethos, emphasis is not only placed on academic excellence but the all-around development of every child. Therefore various functional clubs and societies are made available from which every child must choose one.
Co-curricular activities provide students with lots of opportunities to explore new interests, develop high levels of skill in existing interests, and develop character traits such as caring and risk-taking, which may not be easily developed within a classroom setting.
At the end of each of our three school terms, every child has the opportunity to change their extracurricular choices. This allows them to sample as many clubs as possible and mix with a wider range of students. Here are some of our clubs:
