Why we place so much importance on after school activities with the Northbridge LEAP program

We are at the end of another year at Northbridge International School Cambodia, and LEAP has almost finished. With one week left of the LEAP program this semester, it is so wonderful to look back and reflect on the opportunities and challenges we have faced. It is also important to reflect on why we place so much importance on after school activities and the relationship they have with our learning in school.

Being an IB school, everything we do is focused around the Learner Profile. The Learner Profile is a collection of attributes that a good learner has and are the qualities that we want all of our learners at NISC to have and develop. These attributes go far beyond academic success and are attributes which can be extended to all of the areas in our lives.

One of the attributes in our Learner Profile is integral to the LEAP program. It is being open minded. This means being open to new experiences and allowing ourselves to try new things. Plenty of the children who took part in LEAP this year showed this by choosing activities which they had never tried before and discovering new passions through this.

Being a good learner also means being an effective communicator. This allows us to work in a team and teaches us how to lead. Sharing ideas and taking on the ideas of others is essential in the classroom but also when working as a team in any context. Many of the activities in LEAP need the students to work together, such as our basketball club.

As part of LEAP, we try to offer opportunities for students to give back to their community. The gardening club have worked hard during Monday afternoons to maintain and develop the school garden and have done a truly fantastic job. This not only makes a pleasant space for those of us at NISC to enjoy, but it also helps the students to develop their caring attribute by showing respect towards others through kindness and acts of service.

The semester culminated with some performances from a selection of the LEAP clubs during our Primary assembly. The children who performed truly demonstrated what LEAP is all about; developing new skills and demonstrating and continually working on the qualities which make us good learners. They proved themselves to be risk takers, performing in front of their peers, teachers and parents.

I hope they inspired the other children in the assembly to think about their passions and interests and join some new LEAP clubs, next year!
