Co-curricular

We believe it’s important for children to have a holistic education, and that education is best when it combines the pursuit of academic excellence with the development of character. That’s why we’re proud of our co-curricular activities, and why our pupils are excelling inside – and outside – of the classroom.

By participating in wide range of co-curricular activities, our pupils have the opportunity to pursue their passions, and develop skills such as leadership and teamwork.

For many in our communities, the opportunity to participate in tournaments, festivals and competitions opens up a whole new world of travel and experience that they may not otherwise be exposed to.
