In developing the ‘whole child’ we pride ourselves on offering a wide variety of co-curriculum learning experiences and after school activities (ASA). As a learning school we aim to grow with our students by being flexible to their growing interests. We do this by having low minimum student number requirements for classes to open and by aligning ourselves with experienced professional providers. All of our ASA can fit into the elements Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS).
- Creativity – arts, and other experiences that involve creative thinking.
- Activity – physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle, complementing academic work elsewhere in the DP.
- Service – an unpaid and voluntary exchange that has a learning benefit for the student. The rights, dignity and autonomy of all those involved are respected.
