Extra-curricular Activities and Trips

We are a faculty who are as busy with our extra-curricular activities as we are in our lessons, with activities taking place every day. These range from Choir to Samba Band, from Drama club to school production rehearsals and the spaces are always busy with students rehearsing for their Music and Drama performances.
