The school has developed an extensive co-curricular programme within the school day. It is our belief that students should be well rounded and not just focus on academics.. More details about the clubs will be announced at the start of the school year.
Three times a week students are given the opportunity to choose clubs that they would like to attend. Choices will include arts and crafts, music, sports, board games, debating, and languages. Students will choose three different clubs each week and will have the opportunity to change their clubs after eight weeks
All off-site activities must serve an educational purpose that is clearly related to the curriculum. The school director will nominate an educational visits group leader to be responsible for the overall control of these activities. The group leader will assist with the coordination of the trip in terms of logistics but does not replace the need for the supervising teacher to conduct their own site assessment.
