Enrichment & ECAs - Aspen Heights British School

Enrichment & ECAs

Aspen Heights British School views extra-curricular activities as an integral part of the education of our students. To that end, we offer a wide range of clubs (included in fees) that aim to introduce the child to potential hobbies, develop particular sports, provide language learning and inspire an interest in areas that perhaps they would not be exposed to through the normal curriculum.

Our external provider Next Step also provide swimming lessons after school and at weekends, and holiday camps at the school – further details on 054 414 6227. Children from Year 1 upwards will be able to select from our extra-curricular clubs each term.

We believe students benefit from extra-curricular activities in a number of ways:

Team Spirit

Team sports require children to work together to achieve a common goal and remove the focus from the individual to the team. Other activities such as drama and dance also promote teamwork.

Physical Development

When children participate in sports and outdoor activities, they get good exercise and learn life-long habits of keeping physically and mentally fit. Combined with other life skills such as learning about nutrition, physical development activities will ensure that children understand the basics of living a healthy lifestyle.

Creativity

Stirring natural curiosity and interests, we champion extra-curricular activities that nurture creativity. Arts and crafts, music, performing arts, sports and dance can all be enjoyed at Aspen Heights.

Self-Confidence

When children learn new skills and engage in social activities, they become more self-confident. Learning social skills like cooperation, negotiation, and conflict resolution, in a fun and relaxed environment, will help them develop skills valuable in all aspects of life.
