After School Activities for all
BIS offers a wide range of recreational, competitive and performance orientated After School Activities (ASA) on both campuses from sports, art, music, drama, design tech, multi media to social and political programs and the Eco School project. BIS typically offers approximately 80 ASAs for almost 400 students per week, so that BIS students may flourish academically, creatively, socially, ethically and physically. For BIS students, education is everywhere, not only in the classroom.
ASA opportunities at BIS include sports such as football, basketball, volleyball, swimming, rugby, gymnastics, cross country, aerobics, yoga, and pilates; performing arts such as music ensembles, choir, theatre, dance, and ballet; visual arts such as painting, design technology, and multimedia, as well as young engineer projects. "Creativity, Activity, Service" and "Service in Action" are integral parts of the curriculum and both are perfect examples of education that goes far beyond the classroom. Model United Nations (MUN) and the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award round out the first-class opportunities available at BIS.
The ASAs range from Early Childhood to grade 12 and are divided into 3 seasons: Fall (August - December), Winter (January - March) and Spring (April - July). At Haimhausen Campus the activities run Monday to Thursday from 16:15 to 17:15 and Friday from 14:30 to 15:45. At City Campus the times are 15:30 to 16:30 from Monday to Thursday and from 13:50 to 14:50 on Friday. BIS provides a courtesy bus from Monday to Thursday for all Secondary School students who travel home by public transport after ASAs (Haimhausen Campus only).
The After School Activities programme is an excellent opportunity to develop your skills beyond the academic curriculum. Here at BIS we do our best to offer an ASA which suits each and every student that attends the school. The aim is to be inclusive and holistic. It’s also a great way to meet and make new friends!
