Extra-Curricular Life

Extra Curricular Activities

Extra Curricular Activities

 Extra-Curricular refers to activities, programs and learning experiences that compliment, in some way, what pupils and students are learning in school. It develops attitudes of cooperation, citizenship, sportsmanship and teamwork. It teaches pupils to be responsible and fulfilled human beings and should give them opportunities that may benefit them in later life. It allows learners to develop character, social skills, critical thinking and talents. It supports the curriculum and the values that we are trying to install.

How it works

Most pupil choose one activity for Community services, one creative and a sporty activity.

Art and Craft club

This is the club that introduces how to produce creative work, explore your ideas and learn new Art and Craft techniques. Students will learn fundamental laws and techniques of drawing and develop their creativity and imagination. Students will use art room and explore different art and craft material.

Debate Club

Students are able to have a constructive debate of topics pertaining to current events.    Students are broken up into two groups. Each team is given a set period of time to prepare an argument. A club member serves as a recorder while the others are sharing their opinions.  One team will argue in favour (pro) and the other will argue in opposition (con). During the debate one member stands and speaks on behave of the group.  The opposing team is only allowed to speak during their designated time.

By participating on a debate team, students learn the art of persuasion.  Research has shown that participation in debates increases students’ academic performance and increases their chances of earning a college degree.  Many colleges offer summer programs that teach debating skills.  Students benefit from preparing for debates by honing their research skills. They also benefit from the experience of speaking in public.

Hand Writing Club

The Handwriting Club is designed to strengthen and develop foundational motor skills and spatial and perceptual skills, review of letter formation and commonly reversed letters, and sentence writing practice.

The Choir

The choir seeks to develop certain attributes in students like being outspoken, eloquent, bold and self-confident on stage and also applying these qualities in other fields of life. We learn vocals, how to sing along with notes of different music and also perfect our voices through playbacks.
