Extra Curricular Activities

Extra-Curricular Activities (ECAs) are a wonderful way for students to build relationships outside of the classroom and to interact with students across the various year groups.

There are many benefits of offering ECAs to students. Firstly, students are being exposed to new and exciting experiences. They get the opportunity to work with different staff and students from across the school and also discover what they are good at and what they interested in, which can help them determine their career path. As various studies have discovered, students who are involved in ECAs tend to do better in academics and learn to use time management. Taking on an ECA can build students’ self-esteem, help set goals for their future and promote teamwork.

NAISAK is pleased to have numerous activities on offer this year by the teachers at school as well as several Community Clubs led by external agencies. These run on various days throughout the week.
