Why Are After-School Activities Important?
Our After-School Activities programme provides students with the opportunity to broaden their learning horizons by participating in a range of creative, active, service, and academic activities. Not only do these activities enrich learning, but they allow students to partake in inclusive, fun, and enjoyable programmes alongside their fellow students. After-School Activities also provide students with the opportunity to go on to represent the school at various events and competitions, such as Model U.N., Global Campus Debate League, and a selection of sports teams, among others.
