Extracurricular activities at St. George's
At St. George’s we have created a full and fun-packed programme of extracurricular activities designed to enable students to enhance their skills in sporting, musical, artistic, technological and linguistic activities.
Among the many activities on offer are skating, boxing, basketball, soccer, tennis, dance, computing and robotics, mandarin lessons, the Greenpower project and theatre. Our students can also join our Music School where they can learn a wide range of instruments such as piano, guitar (acoustic and electric), violin, viola, flute among others as well as Music Theory, Vocal Training and Orchestra.
In addition, if a group of students comes to us with a shared interest, such as photography, we try our best to find an instructor and add the activity to our offering.
Physical activities help students to develop coordination and motor skills while promoting values such as respect, self-esteem, companionship and teamwork.
Our students can choose from the following sports activities:
Creative Arts and Music
Our students can choose from a wide range of artistic and musical activities designed to enhance their creative skills and to encourage them to develop their artistic expression and sensitivity. Activities include:
St. George's Music Live
Computing and robotics
Robotics is an extracurricular activity during which students learn how to program robots to perform simple tasks, improving students’ scientific and technical knowledge and understanding, whilst simultaneously encouraging them to think creatively, make decisions and solve problems.
Greenpower UK is an extracurricular subject driven by a global project instigated in the United Kingdom called the «Greenpower Education Trust». The Greenpower UK model seeks to encourage young people to embrace Science, Technology, Engineering (Arts) and Mathematics (STE(A)M subjects), with a view to increasing the number of young people who choose to pursue careers in technical fields.
The project provides a framework for teams to design, develop and assemble electric cars, which they can then enter into open races against other groups participating in the scheme. It is a fun, competitive and intellectually challenging activity and pupils and teachers alike enjoy the excitement of being part of this global challenge.
