Extracurricular activities

Beyond the classroom

We believe that learning goes beyond the classroom. The school offers many extracurricular activities for both primary and secondary school students. Our afterschool program caters to our younger students, while our Sports & Cultural Association helps our older students pursue their passions outside of class.

Extracurriculars for primary school

Afterschool Clubs are proposed on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday after class. These include arts, music, sport, and cultural activities such as musical comedy, choir, creative writing, theater (in English and in French), hip-hop, jazz, tap dancing, chess, robotics, crafts, sewing, cooking, Kung Fu… Nursery children have their own Junior Afterschool program, which combines hands-on arts and crafts with theater, story telling, and games.

Extracurricular activities for secondary school

At the secondary level, many extracurricular activities are organized by the school’s Sports & Cultural Association. These include coding, theater, yoga, photography, hip-hop, jazz dance, robotics, as well as sports (basketball, football, rock climbing, etc.). The range of activities is adjusted every year based on student choices and suggestions. In addition to these, the school has a vibrant Chess Club and a successful Debate Club that prepares teams for the Harvard Model United Nations or Harvard Model Congress Europe tournaments.
