Co-curricular Activities for children between age 5-18
Discover how Co-Curricular Activities at OWIS helps your child to explore their passions, learn new skills and boost their confidence in areas such as sports, arts, music and languages after school hours.
At One World International School, we encourage our students from Early Childhood to Secondary School to register for our co-curricular activities.
Co-curricular activities provide our students with additional opportunities, beyond the classroom, to cultivate their talents and explore passions they didn't know they had.
Higher Academic Achievement
Parents sometimes worry that participating in extracurricular activities will diminish the amount of time their children can spend on homework, but involvement in co-curricular activities can actually improve students' motivation and attitudes toward school.
Besides gaining skills related to specific activities, such as sports, students learn a variety of essential skills that will help them thrive in all areas of life. Co-curricular activities allow students to build their skills in communication, goal-setting and prioritisation, leadership, critical thinking, teamwork, problem-solving and time-management, to name a few.
Exploring interests and passions in a structured setting outside the classroom can broaden students' perspectives and worldview, which is crucial in preparing them to become global leaders and innovators.
Getting involved in after school activities they are passionate about provides a sense of accomplishment that increases students' confidence. Children have the freedom to enjoy learning new skills without the pressure to achieve high grades. This relaxed environment can empower students to take risks as they take on new challenges.
Taking part in our OWIS co-curricular activities programme enables students to connect with teachers and peers in an informal setting, giving them a sense of belonging and helping them find their place within our vibrant school community.
