Participating in my club taught me so much about myself. I was introduced to a part of me that I didn't know was there before. It opened a door to a whole new world.Senior Student
Seoul International School believes that participation in a wide variety of extracurricular and student-selected activities is a vital part of our educational philosophy. This type of participation is a privilege that requires responsibilities to the school, activity, student body, community, and to the students themselves. These activities contribute immensely to the development of lifelong learning skills, enabling students to maximize their educational experience at SIS. There is something for everyone, and we encourage all students to find at least one extracurricular activity in which to participate.
Students at all levels have the opportunity to participate in various extracurricular and student-selected activities.
Battle of the Books is an excellent reading incentive program for grade 4 and 5 students. It encourages students to read and ask analytical questions from a range of stories and genres they might not have otherwise been exposed to. The program culminates in a wonderful international schools’ competition promoting collaboration, sportsmanship, and a love of reading.
The school Spirit Club is a new activity at the Elementary school designed for students from grade five. The Spirit Club seeks to establish activities, programs and team building strategies to further enhance the sense of community at SIS. The club will develop various activities throughout the school year to promote school cheer, sponsor charity service projects and promote “School Spirit Day” celebrations. This activity is perfect for students who enjoy being a part of a team and collaborating with others.
