Cocurricular programs offered in 2019 include intra-school debating, song-writing, digital photography, aerobics and aviation.
The school also provides its students with the opportunity to develop leadership skills through student-run initiatives, fundraising, extra-curricular clubs and the House system, promoting a strong sense of wellbeing and engagement that extends beyond the classroom.
