Extra-Curricular Activities (ECAs)
Teach me, and I will forget. Show me, and I might remember. Involve me, and I will never forget.”
At KC Dubai we pride ourselves on a superb Extra-Curricular Activities (ECA) programme both in and out of school. Extra-curricular refers to activities, programs and learning experiences that complement, in some way, what our pupils are learning in school. We believe that our extra-curricular programme should develop attitudes of cooperation, critical thinking, citizenship, sportsmanship and teamwork, as well as allowing pupils’ talents and interests to flourish under expert guidance, support and tuition from a range of highly qualified and enthusiastic staff.
All pupils at KC Dubai will be expected to choose three extra-curricular activities that will take place at lunchtime or after school. The majority of these activities are run by our own teachers and are free of charge, but there are also some activities provided by external agencies where a small cost is charged for their provision.
Inclusiveness is central to our philosophy as well as the desire to enable elite performers to exercise and develop their outstanding talents. These activities support the curriculum that is taught and the values that are instilled at Kent College Dubai.
