What are your best memories of school? It could be a teacher, a classmate, or a trip you took for a competition—what is for sure is that they played an important part in shaping you to become who you are today. As parents, we want to choose the right school, a school full of opportunities that will help create special memories for our children.
Here at ISKL, our co-curricular program complements our holistic education in supporting students to explore their passions and interests, achieve their goals, and better understand themselves. Essentially, we provide a world of opportunities for your child.
A K-12 Co-curricular Program
In Elementary School, we seek to provide opportunities for our young learners to discover hobbies, sports, and interests beyond the school curriculum. While in Middle School (MS), our co-curricular program ensures that students develop agency and future-ready skills. When students enter High School (HS), they are empowered to choose and lead clubs based on their interests, competencies, and aspirations in preparation for life beyond ISKL.
The opportunities bring a kaleidoscope of memories for our students. Let’s take a closer look at the three pillars around which our co-curricular programs are built: Activity, Creativity, Service.
Activities Beyond the Classroom
Participation in activities is an integral component of school life at ISKL. Our students learn collaboration, camaraderie, and commitment through varied activities such as debate, STEM, athletics, and sports. These attributes are developed and practiced by students of every age, on the track and trail, court and studio, and pitch and pool.
Our students compete in many local and regional competitions throughout the year, which allows them to connect with students from other schools. ISKL is also a proud participating member of The Association of International Malaysian Schools (AIMS) and the Interscholastic Association of Southeast Asia Schools (IASAS).
An Avenue for Creativity
Creativity is central to our student’s development, and we offer a wide range of opportunities embedded within our curriculum and co-curricular activities. These are critical components in enabling all our students to experiment in a nurturing environment while encouraging them to discover new interests.
Learning Through Service
A wide range of service learning co-curricular activities are available to students that encourage them to make positive changes in the world and become involved in exploring community needs, solution planning, and action.
ISKL offers several clubs that participate in community partnerships, such as the Chin Community Partnership and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). Besides that, students have the opportunity to engage in Global Action Program (GAP), designed to provide students with a hands-on opportunity to make an impact within the wider community.
A key component of ISKL’s holistic education is our broad range of co-curricular activities that provide opportunities for each student to be all they can be. To learn more about the co-curricular program at ISKL, visit here. We look forward to creating beautiful experiences for your child!
