As part of a healthy and efficient education, the SABIS® Educational System calls for a measured balance of homework, before- and after-school activities, work, and personal responsibilities. Thus, SABIS® students are encouraged to join numerous after-school activities following the completion of the academic day.
In the SABIS® Educational System, extracurricular activities complement and facilitate students' academic studies. While providing ways to socialize, relax, have fun, and become refreshed, extracurricular activities keep students physically fit, increase their energy and stamina, widen their interests, and promote mental agility. Students may participate in a wide range of activities including swimming, tennis, table-tennis, volleyball, football, painting, and music, among others. All extracurricular programs are organized and overseen by the student-run SABIS Student Life Organization®.
With a wide range of activity options catering to all tastes, students can develop their interests, refine their talents, and hone their social skills, while strengthening friendships. Voluntary student and staff extracurricular offerings at the SABIS® schools typically include sports teams, academic competitions, field trips, and various school-sponsored athletic and non-athletic activities.
