By participating in activities outside of normal lessons, students can explore their interests and passion, build social skills and make friends with like-minded people. Extracurricular activities are a great way to increase confidence and try new things, and also teaches students to manage their time effectively and develop a good work-life balance – all important skills for future studies, life and careers.
We place equal emphasis on our students’ intellectual and personal development, encouraging them to learn from everything they do.
All our Junior and Senior School students are encouraged to take advantage of the extra-curricular activities available at the Academy, to learn and develop new skills or devote time to an interest.
Students and staff collaborate to produce the vast array of ECAs available to students at Al Rabeeh Academy. Check back soon for more details on those available to our children from September 2020.
Engagement in sport aids our students’ physical development, improving their coordination and skills in a variety of sports and helps them to learn how to be part of a team. A range of sports clubs such as football, basketball, netball and more, will be available for recreational and representative ability levels. We also aim to offer martial arts to our students.
Students will have the opportunity to develop creative flair, learn new techniques and practices in clubs like photography, dance, arts & crafts, and drama and could lead to exciting roles in school shows, performances and media teams
A variety of clubs aimed at developing and building skills and understanding in the areas of Science, technology, engineering and maths.
One of our key goals at Al Rabeeh Academy is that our students will make a positive difference in the lives of others and leave school world-wise.
In service ECA’s students can participate in service learning opportunities appropriate for their age, including school sustainability programmes and community outreach. Older students will learn how to lead these initiatives with guidance from our teachers, developing their own ideas and plans, and executing them themselves.
Service learning forms an essential part of shaping character values and dispositions that can alter the lives of our students and those they support. This is an integral component of a truly holistic education that we dedicate resources and time to in order to develop a culture that will enable these values to flourish.
