The programme of Extra Curricular Activities is part of our overall curriculum offer at CISG and is designed to enhance the child’s experience in education. Learning beyond the class room is a key aspect of any high-performing school. For this reason, taking part in the Extra Curricular Activities programme at CISG is compulsory for all students. Every student should take part in an Extra Curricular Activity.
The programme is scheduled once a week directly after school hours. Parents are expected not to make other arrangements for the student for this time each week and should support their child in taking part in the programme. Each student selects an activity from a schedule which encompasses creative, artistic, sporting and other activities.
This programme is not about academic learning; it is an added dimension to classroom learning which extends the child’s all-round education in the wider sense. Through taking part in a club or activity, students may develop key skills, for example, research, evaluation, analysis and communication through the Debate Club. Students who enjoy mathematical activities may find Chess a stimulating choice which develops strategic thinking skills. The range of clubs and activities offers students the chance to take part in an enjoyable club or activity, to learn a new skill or take up a new hobby. Sports are especially popular and are strongly advised for students to enhance physical fitness and sporting prowess.
For some students, this time is allocated for additional tuition in literacy and numeracy where the need is identified by the school. Parents of the students concerned will be advised of this extra provision and should not make other arrangements for the student for this time each week to ensure that their child can attend and benefit from this provision.
