Dear members of our community,
We are excited to announce that we will have our Extra-Curricular Clubs back starting the first week of October! We have been working hard getting professional instructors onboard to provide the clubs for our school.
Participating in the extra-curricular clubs program offers our students a chance to take part in activities and sports which they are passionate about, fostering personal growth, emotional well-being, and holistic development, whilst creating a sense of belonging. These clubs provide the opportunity for skill development which are not part of their regular academic classes, being a vital component of our students' educational journey. By connecting with like-minded peers, students cultivate a supportive community that extends beyond the school classroom, enriching their educational experience, and continuously developing their enthusiasm and curiosity for learning.
The first round of clubs will run for 10 weeks. Clubs are run two days per week on a Wednesday and a Friday afternoon, with Session#1 13:30 – 14:30, and Session#2 14:45 – 15:45.
Our rational for the choice of our clubs has been according to the supply of qualified and professional instructors whilst doing our best to meet the demand from our community. With the high demand for variety of clubs, we will be developing the program throughout this academic year and aim to increase options of clubs available for more students. We are only currently able to organise clubs for students from P4 to S7 on the short days at school. The goal is for us to maintain our growth and hopefully soon offer more clubs for more students.
For our students who do not live close to school and the clubs and bus schedule posing as a challenge to join, we have created a solution to the best of our abilities to include these students.
Please note the following if you are a student that lives in Amsterdam or not close to school and make use of private bus/ taxi service:
We are currently running a subsidy for families in need and families that have a reduced school tuition rate. To apply for the subsidy, please go ahead as normal with your sign-up and payment to ensure your child’s place in the club and contact us directly via email.
Please be advised that upon receipt of your sign-up, we will proceed to submit the request for establishment of this club to the school administration. It is important to note that the school retains discretion over the allocation of space for specific clubs, and there is no assurance of availability. Consequently, in the event that the school determines that there is insufficient space to accommodate the participants and proposed club, we reserve the right to cancel the club’s formation and provide you with a refund accordingly. The PA reserves the right to stop the Extra-Curricular Club program or a specific club in the event of no program coordinator, not sufficient volunteers, and the inability to coordinate the clubs (in this case a refund will be provided for sessions that are not conducted). Please read the terms & conditions.
Sign-up starts Monday 11th September at 7pm and ends on Sunday 17th September 7pm.
If you have any questions about the clubs & registration please contact us.
Meet Arthur Seiwert, our Club Coordinator here.
We look forward to your sign-ups and getting our extra-curricular program off the ground!
