Extended Curriculum Activities and Sports

These are available for students in Kindergarten and above and can extend the school day until 17:30. Competitive sports teams in the secondary school sometimes practice until 18:30. 


Teacher-Led ECAs


Most of our ECAs are led by ISP teachers with a skill or talent they would like to share with students. Or, teachers create activities based on students' requests.
