At ISB we offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities for our students. All students are wholeheartedly encouraged to begin or pursue an interest that lies outside the academic life. Extra-curricular activities provide students with the chance to expand their horizons, and good universities throughout the world are always seeking students who have a breadth of experience.
The program is divided into 2 sessions and runs for children aged 4 to 18. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday the activities are optional and will run from 15.15 to 16.15. Enrichment takes place on Wednesday from 14.40 to 15.30, when each child needs to be enrolled into an extracurricular activity. The activities offered include sports, performing arts, science, board games, modern foreign languages, music and debating, as well as special- interest clubs and extra academic lessons.
ECAs cover a wide variety of activities organized by our teachers. In addition, there are ECAs offered by external instructors. These include karate, swimming, young engineering, cooking & nutrition activities, chess and playing musical instruments. A full list is available each session on the school website and the registration process is explained to parents at the beginning of the academic year. Some ECAs have an additional charge.
Our House System
The House system is a tradition of the British style education and exists to encourage healthy competition, teamwork, leadership and inclusion. Since September 2014, the ISB Houses have been: Fox House (Blue); Lynx House (Green); Bear House (Red); Hare House (Yellow). Students compete in sports, subject games and quizzes, the Question of the Week competition and much more. Every single student has the opportunity to represent their House at some point over the course of the year.
