In Secondary School, extracurricular activities are regarded as ongoing activities that aim at providing opportunities to improve on the areas of the students’ interests. Therefore, while these opportunities address a range of interests to the students, the number of activities is kept to a minimum so the school can provide more specialized education.

Here are some examples of what the secondary students have been offered:

1. Student Organizations / Clubs

FIS offers organizations/clubs to provide a venue for students to identify and apply their special interests and talents. As a supplement to classroom learning, the students develop further their critical and analytical thinking as they venture into the different activities each club offers. Clubs for academics, non-academic subjects, and co-curricular areas are offered and are facilitated by the teachers.

2. Sports Program

 4. Educational Exposure Trips and Off-Campus Activities

Local and International Educational Exposure trips and Off-Campus Activities are supplementary and complementary to classroom learning. It concretizes important curricular objectives by way of allowing the students to experience and discover the environment and its elements beyond the four walls of their classrooms.

An Educational Trip or an Off-Campus Activity is an official school function, therefore, early notification shall be sent to parents by the Principal via a circular/letter indicating the details of the trip or activity.

Likewise, it provides a reply slip where parents need to sign as an acknowledgment that their child has their permission to join the activity which will be submitted to the Class Adviser. A student who fails to submit a signed reply slip shall not be permitted to join the trip.
