Co-curricular activities support students' holistic development as expressed in the school's mission and therefore are viewed as an important part of the school programme. Well-rounded students work hard within the formal curriculum and aim to achieve academically and they also participate in other activities through which they extend specific skills and learn to socialize, collaborate and compete in the company of their peers. They offer students challenge, the development of their physical, mental, social, emotional and artistic skills, require concentration and provide a sense of accomplishment. A wide range of activities is planned in order to cater for individual interest, provide development of individual and team pursuits, and opportunities for research, confidence-building and competition. Among these activities will be school trips, after-school clubs, sports, and curriculum extension activities that may involve expos, workshops, games or competitions with other schools.
