The extra-curricular programme at Island School is viewed as an integral part of the development of all students. Through a rich and diverse programme, students experience safe, enjoyable, and challenging activities, enabling them to develop and grow into successful and happy young adults. To that end participation in the ECA programme is compulsory. The school has high expectations that students will engage fully with the many and varied activities on offer. Students are expected to participate in two activities a term.
Students learn how to work collaboratively through being part of a team, whether it is a sports team, or playing in an orchestra. They learn about commitment and responsibility to themselves and one another.
