One of the major goals of The Oxford School is to make provisions for the holistic growth of our children and equip them with knowledge and skills intrinsic to competing in a global community. In order to assist our students in accomplishing these goals, as well as offer them the opportunity to learn and develop skills, we have introduced a structured eight week After School Enrichment Program. As the name suggests this program will support student enrichment and be based on the students’ interests.Trainers and coaches are invited from professional backgrounds to enhance the After School Program to the highest possible standards. We aim to offer a structured environment that fosters good health and gives children the option of attending an after school program instead of an unsupervised alternative. Being accepted by friends and instructors through games and activities will help the kids accept themselves and broaden their perspective in different academic and sporting areas.
The program is open to students from Years 3 to Year 11, depending on the activity selected.The students who take the regular school bus can take the bus after the activities, students who use Own Transport will have to be collected at 3:45pm.Below is the list of clubs with their details for this academic year, we intend to add many more clubs as and when we have more interested students.
ALL PROGRAMMES WILL BE HELD ONCE A WEEK FOR 8 WEEKS
