Extra-Curricular


Cambridge international section gives pupils the scope and the spirit of healthy competition-to excel at all levels. Class work and homework have their academic benefits but academic distinctions alone do not fulfill the purpose for which the Cambridge section exists.

The benefits of extra-curricular activities are far reaching as the pupils broaden their minds and make thoughtful lifestyle choices. Research has shown that students who engage in extra–curricular activities are advantaged intellectually, spiritually, emotionally and physically thus they achieve a high level of personal well being.

The Cambridge Section offers a wide range of stimulating and fun activities for students to develop an all rounded child.
