Extra Curricular Activities

Clubs & Extra-Curricular Activities

Our extra-curricular activities (ECA) are designed to foster the overall development of students to become well-rounded and holistic individuals. They target different physical, mental, emotional, social, moral, and spiritual aspects that contribute to this development. All students, including SEND, gifted and talented, are eligible to participate in the ECA of their choice and interest.

We offer a wide-range of activities to our students because we believe that each activity will promote wellness and lifelong learning opportunity. Their involvement in ECA will enhance their life inside and outside the school, broaden their horizons, and develop greater and more engaging experiences that will contribute to the formation of their personal and social characteristics.
