Activities outside the curricula which helps in the physical and emotional development of students
At Global Indian International School Singapore, a core component of holistic education is the Extracurricular and Co-Curricular activities that shape the development of students. They are instrumental in honing the talents and developing social skills, critical thinking and teamwork.
GIIS Singapore has an array of ECA and CCA activities for the benefit of our students. At our school, it is mandatory for our students to participate in at least one activity under both categories.
To instil a sense of belonging, camaraderie and brotherhood among students, many of these activities are held by grouping students into four Houses which encourages healthy competition, a hunger for winning and pride in accomplishments.
Extracurricular activities are those activities, often sports-based, that take place outside of the GIIS classroom, helping students develop their personalities and physical aptitude, which is a crucial part of our Nine Gems programme.
Students, at our international school in Singapore, who show particular talent in these extracurricular activities may participate in the Gold Squad Programme, which provides additional, intensive training under skilled coaches.
Trained coaches and instructors ensure that your child is well instructed in a host of extra-curricular activities (ECAs) at no extra cost. There are a wide range of sports activities to choose from:
Academic excellence has long been linked to professional and career success.
Physical activity should be an integral part of children’s daily lives. Sports activities provide them with an outlet — one in which they can connect with friends their own age and enjoy a common interest.
International schools in Singapore provide experiences that are beyond the curriculum and help students build a well-rounded personality.
