KIS offers an increasingly wide range of after school clubs designed to support learning in the classroom as well as to help students develop a variety of interests beyond the classroom. Many of our clubs also encourage a healthy lifestyle and a zest for life. Recent educational research has suggested that students participating in such activities improve their academic achievements too. With so many benefits, we naturally hope that many of our students will make the most of the choices offered each term. Clubs are run by KIS staff, outside coaches and trainers and KIS parents, who are encouraged to use their experience and expertise to support the programme.
Clubs require participants to make a serious commitment and therefore we ask all students and their families to think very carefully about their choices before applying. Attendance registers are taken for every session and club leaders must be informed if a student is unable to attend. Please note that unexplained absences will result in the offer of a place being withdrawn.
Primary Sessions start at 2.10pm and finish at 3pm. Secondary sessions start at 3.10pm and finish at 4pm. There are a minimum number of five students required for each club to run. Please note however that numbers are also limited for most of our clubs and places will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Each term we run a small number of ‘invitation-only’ academic clubs created to meet the specific learning needs of students. Students selected for FOBISSEA Games teams are also expected to attend scheduled training sessions incorporated into the after school programme. Dates for submission of applications are announced at the beginning of each term and we regret we are unable to accept applications after the stated closing date.
The school runs free Mandarin classes as part of our after school programme. New families should register at the main school office and arrange to speak with a senior member of our team of Mandarin teachers to confirm which level their child will join. Please note that if students opt for Mandarin it takes precedence over other after-school clubs. French classes also take place in school every Saturday morning during term time. New parents wishing to enroll their child should do so at the school office. These classes are intended for Malaysian students who must by law study Bahasa Malaysia during school curriculum time and therefore have no opportunity to opt for French. However, we do accept non-Malaysians providing that there are spaces in the class and it is clearly understood that Malaysian students have priority.
