It is well known that extracurricular activities outside of the classroom can have a positive impact on children. At Immaculate Conception Preparatory School, our students can get involved in many such extracurricular activities.
During School – Sports
Physical education forms an essential part of our programme for all students. Swimming is also required during the regular school day for Grades 1 to 6. Students are assigned to 3 houses:
- Fatima – Yellow
- Guadelupe – Red
- Lourdes – Blue
Inter house competitions are held throughout the year.
During School – Non Sports
“Activity Time” is scheduled each Friday afternoon, and cover a wide range of offerings such as fun with puzzles, sewing and drama. Activities are determined at the beginning of each school year by all teachers and our offerings will change from year to year. We also encourage parents with a special skill to offer their time and come in and share with the students during the Activity hour. Students are given the opportunity to rotate their chosen activity mid-year.
Extracurricular activities which are organized through the school include sporting, non-sporting and
club/community groups. These are detailed below.
