The ASHK after school activities program exists to provide opportunities for the children to build on their learning in contexts and experiences that develop new skills, help students gain maturity and confidence that comes from self-belief, build leadership qualities, and learn how to collaborate effectively in a team.
ASHK will offer children a variety of activities that will take place in a safe and well supervised environment. Some will be supervised and taught by teachers and others by organizations that we will invite into the school from the local community. Most activities will be free of charge though others will incur a small cost if your child wishes to participate. We recommend that over one academic year your child chooses at least one activity each half term from each of the categories below.
After school activities will be arranged in four clusters. These are examples of what might be on offer for academic year 2016-2017.
