A school’s After School Activities programme not only complements the curriculum offered at school, it can also uncover some hidden talents and enable students to discover a love for something new.
Take for example the student with a flair for technical drawing, or the student who completes a camping expedition with nothing more than backpack of supplies, or the students who makes their peers laugh with their comic strip creation.
It’s these fun discoveries that make After School Activities such a valuable addition to any school programme.
At The British School of Beijing, Shunyi, more than 100 different types of After School Activities and Clubs are offered to students in primary and secondary school across the three terms.
They are provided to enrich learning, discover hidden talents and to enable students to further understand the world around them.
