Extracurricular Activities

We know there is as much to be learnt outside of the classroom as there is inside of it. We offer our students a wide range of extracurricular activities to complement their rigorous academic curriculum and encourage them to explore their personal passions in a safe and caring environment.

Integrating extracurricular activities with our students’ academic lives offers additional opportunities for personal development and broadens their perspective about the world at large. Students who receive a well-rounded education are better prepared for the future as they develop a wider range of knowledge, as well as the 21st-century skills necessary to succeed.

Your child will discover their passions and talents and build the strength of character, compassion and empathy to make a positive impact on the lives of others.
