Extra-curricular activities

Presentation of extra-curricular activities

Extra-curricular activities are complementary to the teaching service, as they are offered by the school to promote and develop students’ talents, knowledge and skills.

In the form of workshops, these exercises aim to help children discover activities they might not have had the opportunity to practise, as well as new fields of interest.

Initiation and discovery are the key words. These workshops aim to stimulate the curiosity of each child in a playful educational setting, through group work.

They also inculcate values such as perseverance and the sense of responsibility.

The proposed activities contribute to the child’s development and sensitivity. They facilitate community living skills.

They provide children with a moment of entertainment and relaxation and help them make good use of their free time.
