Beyond the Classroom
Extra-Curricular activities give students the opportunity to explore different talents, gain confidence, learn to take risks, try new activities and meet and interact with new friends.
Students rotate through a variety of activities that include sports, arts and crafts, performing arts and those that are just for fun. Learning a musical instrument, a new language or joining the debate team is about discovering the art of practice, patience and persistence. Team sports like football, rugby and basketball not only keep children active, but also help them to learn the value of teamwork, and how to be gracious winners and losers. Arts and craft and performing arts allow students to explore their creativity and collaborate with others by sharing and expressing ideas. Activities such as karate and dance teach students both discipline and self-expression. Lego robotics, computing and technology clubs help our students think creatively, understand how things around us work, and give them the power to create and succeed in a digital world.
A wide variety of optional extra-curricular activities is offered to students at BIST, suiting all interests, from sports to science, crafts to computing. Activities vary from year to year, and depend on a minimum number of students enrolling. Students in Primary School activities rotate 4 times a year, ensuring they get to experience a wide range of activities.
Swimming club and a small number other specialist activities have separate sign up procedures.
