Extracurricular activities

At FIS, we believe that education does not just happen in the classroom – far from it. That is why extracurricular activities (ECAs) form an integral part of school life. They enable students to learn and grow. Some students develop their language skills, sporting prowess or artistic flair. Others discover new talents.

ECAs are created just for FIS students and are supervised by qualified professionals. Available from kindergarten all the way through to Terminale, these activities take place outside of teaching time, throughout the school year. And they are reasonably priced.

There is a wide range of activities to choose from, from sports and arts, through to the cultural and educational. We regularly monitor our extracurricular activities, reviewing them each year to ensure they are of consistently high quality.

As well as providing an opportunity to discover new interests, extracurricular activities encourage students from different year groups and streams to mix – all in one bilingual environment.

Snapshot of our ECAs

The activities available vary according to children’s age and campus. But whether they are into sports, art, languages or need help with their homework, there is bound to be something to suit. Below is a selection of the activities we offer:  

Participation in local and regional sports competitions

We offer sports activities that can be enjoyed competitively or simply for pleasure.

Thanks to the efforts of our physical education teachers, secondary students can take part in various sports competitions organised by Hong Kong sports federations, in football, handball, basketball, fencing, rugby sevens, swimming, athletics and netball. These federations include HKSSFHong Kong School Sports Federation, ISSFHK – International Schools Sports Federation Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Junior Basketball League.

In addition, our athletes are sometimes invited to compete in meetings or matches organised in Hong Kong or abroad by AEFE or international schools, in swimming, rock climbing, football, volleyball, basketball and athletics.
