Why extracurricular activities are so important

Aside from being one of the best schools teaching the British curriculum in Dubai, at International School of Creative Science – Nad Sl Sheba, we go above and beyond to provide our students with a holistic experience by including a variety of extracurricular programmes for our students to explore.

Whilst extracurricular activities are meant to be fun, they go beyond playing with friends over the weekend. These are activities that students commit to regularly in terms of time as well as initiative. Activities beyond the classroom encourage children to look at the world from a wider perspective, teaching them that there are many different ways to look at a situation. The benefits are tremendous and undeniable, boosting personal growth and academic development for your child.

For the younger ones, the benefits start with a solid foundation. The right extracurricular activity can form the basis of their personality and help them form good habits as they grow older. Involving your young child in an extracurricular activity also helps them learn to socialise with others, which encourages teamwork and helps them build higher self-esteem.

For older children, the benefits are more practical. The networks they form can come in handy later in life, both personally and professionally. By developing their passions and skills, they feel more confident in themselves and their abilities. And once a child has that confidence, there is no stopping them! But instead of taking part in every club and society, your child should pick the ones they find the most interesting.

Extracurricular activities are also welcome opportunities for students to take a break from academics and yet remain productive. Many of the most essential life skills are learned through play, and what better opportunity than extracurricular activities that are already parent-approved.

At International School of Creative Science – Nad Al Sheba, we offer a variety of activities that complement our offering of the British curriculum in Dubai. From drama, which helps student develop their creativity, to coding clubs where they can hone their programming talent, we have our students covered. Whether you enjoy building things and want to be part of a Lego Club or are looking to perfect your origami, we provide a space where every child can pursue their interests and channel their inner passion.
