The extracurricular activities are designed to complete the School curriculum and to provide our students with the opportunity to develop skills and to shape their personality and leadership qualities.Such activities are beneficial to student’s overall performance, which help them to organize their time and contribute to and allow them to develop social and cognitive skills. This in turn builds self-esteem and encourages them to make friends with those who have similar interests to them.
