We believe that After-School Activities (ASAs) are an integral part of a rounded and fulfilling education, and we encourage all students to participate in after-school enrichment opportunities.

ASAs allow students to learn many different skills, let them be physical, artistic, creative, cultural or scientific.

We aim to provide engaging activities and clubs tailored to meet the needs of each year group, all of them supporting and transmitting our core values. Students are able to choose from a wide range of activities offered daily.

All our providers have been selected for their recognized professionalism, experience, and passion for the subject they teach. 

Internal ASAs

Internal After-School Activities (ASAs) are taught by SISD teachers and are free of charge (in some cases, some fees might apply for equipment)

Each student is allowed to participate in 2 Internal ASAs per week (After-school care is not included in this quota).

Early Years: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Primary: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Secondary: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday

To register, please apply on schoolsbuddy
External ASAs

External After-School Activities (ASAs) are offered on SISD campus by external providers. Their fees vary for each after-school activity.

Students can participate in as many external ASAs as they wish.

External ASA registration is done directly with each provider by phone or e-mail. Registration is done on a first come, first served basis and places are reserved by external providers only once they have received payments.

To contact external providers, please refer to the ASA Parents Handbook 2022/23

All ASAs are located on campus. Please see schedule for exact location.

Please respect deadlines. If you miss deadlines, ASA registration will not be guaranteed and your children will not be able to participate in ASAs.

Equipment / Attire
Every child is expected to come to every lesson with the appropriate attire and equipment. Failure to do so will result in the child not being accepted in the ASA.
This is especially true for sports ASAs for which children need to have their sports clothes and shoes. Children are allowed to wear their SISD sports uniform on days they have sports ASAs.

Attendance / Punctuality
Every child is expected to attend every lesson of the semester and to be there on time. In case of an emergency, students/parents are expected to let the ASA Department and the teachers know.

Rules and Regulations
Failure to follow the ASA rules and regulations and the teachers’ / external providers’ policies might jeopardize the right of a child to participate in after-school activities.
