Extra-Curricular & Afternoon Activities
At GSIS, we attach great importance for our students to have a wide selection of extra-curricular activities. Such activities help students to feel more connected to the community and develop skills that go far beyond the school curriculum. They lead to higher enjoyment and engagement with the school, especially when joining competitions on behalf of GSIS. Also, universities understand the advantages of extra-curricular activities for students and hence consider them during their admissions procedures.
Afternoon Activities (Chargeable)
For several years, GSIS has offered a wide selection of afternoon activities in addition to the curriculum which gives students the opportunity to expand their strengths and skills. They can build new friendships between the streams at GSIS. Afternoon activities currently are only offered at the Peak campus (Primary) and Pok Fu Lam campus (Kindergarten) and are separated into three semesters per school year. They are taught by externals and GSIS faculty staff and are charged.
Extra-Curricular Activities (ECA, Non-chargeable)
At the Primary (Peak Campus), Secondary (Peak Campus) and Kindergarten (Pok Fu Lam Campus) we offer a wide selection of ECAs which are an integral part of the school curriculum. These sports and non-sports activities are taught by GSIS faculty staff.
Secondary Sports Teams and Training
Students register themselves for these teams and take part in practice sessions first. Teams with a limited number of seats only choose as many as required, hence unfortunately not all student can join their favourite team. Students have to login during the enrolment period in order to register for team. The main contact at GSIS is Mrs Wymond, yet questions for particular activities should be directed to the respective teaching staff.
Since the club was founded in 1989, ALBA BERLIN has developed into the most successful and largest basketball club in Germany. With a focus on sustainable youth work, ALBA BERLIN has been using basketball as a platform for more than a decade to effectively promote intercultural exchange in Asia. At the ALBA BERLIN Basketball Academy Asia in Hong Kong, professional trainers incorporate the German model of success by combining high-quality basketball activities and education in a meaningful way. Academy activities at GSIS go beyond the often “one-dimensional” framework of traditional athletic programmes by providing access to unique experiences on and off the basketball court.
