Extracurricular

At The City School international, we aim for the holistic development of every student. Here extracurricular and co-curricular activities play a vital role in nurturing the whole child. Our Thursday mornings are dedicated to clubs and support classes. Where every student enrolls themselves to their area of interest or undertakes support classes to build on their areas of weakness. Teachers, senior students or hired experts conduct these classes and hone the skills of our students.  Our regular field trip is aimed at experiential and contextual learning and evidenced as reaping paramount benefits.
