Through Optional Activities, students not only gain knowledge but develop all their capacities, such as social, physical and emotional skills. Furthermore they enhance their bond with King’s College, improve their independence and self esteem, and begin to foster responsibility for the management of their free time. They socialise with pupils from different classes and strengthen their relationships.
It is our desire to personalise the development of our students, and that is why we offer a wide range of Optional Activities.
Optional Activities take place at two different times:
- At lunchtime: 12.50 – 13.20
- After school: 16.20 – 17:20
These Activities are optional and are taught by qualified, experienced and enthusiastic teachers, who provide fun for the students. Optional Activities are organised for all courses, with a specific offer for each level.
Optional Activities include:
Creative or Pedagogic Activities
These activities allow children to make their own artistic creations,and learn how to express and communicate feelings and emotions creatively. They discover the possibilities and limitations of their own bodies by increasing self-confidence, as well as achieving greater oral, manual and visual skills.
Multilingual people, especially children, are skilled at switching between two systems of speech, writing, and structure. This makes them good multitaskers, as they can easily switch between different structures. Another good reason to speak different languages is that it allows our pupils to stand out from the crowd, and means they will be able to work anywhere in the world.
