Inspiring Respect, Resilience and the ability to Think and Act Inclusively in our international environment
Our students are encouraged to participate in a range of clubs and activities through the extra curricular programmes on offer. Participation in these activities aims to boost emotional and social well-being, improving physical fitness and encouraging goal setting, teamwork and the chance to develop leadership skills.
Students from all age groups have the opportunity to participate in a number of activities that take place beyond the school day. They range from Students Council’s, Arts and Science Activities, Dance and Drama, Music, National Honour Society, JROTC Colour Guard and Drill Team, Sports, STEAM and Musical Theatre.
This special programme celebrates learning that not only occurs during school hours, but beyond the school day. AFNORTH’s University for Children is led by the children’s interests and family time at weekends and in the holidays.
It aims to:
The programme is available for all children in Year 6 / Grade 5. Children collect credits for each hour they spend attending activities or visiting ‘Learning Destinations. The credits are recorded and then children receive an award at the end of the year based on the number of credits they earn. Children can visit interesting locations taking along their passport to be stamped or signed as proof of their learning. AFNORTH School clubs are ‘Learning Destinations’ so if children attend these they can receive a stamp or signature for this too.
Families are invited to the Graduation ceremony, usually held in May or June. The children are robed in caps, gowns and presented with their certificate. The Graduation is a brilliant way to celebrate the commitment and hard work demonstrated throughout the year.
