Our emphasis is on participating to the best of one’s ability. Expert coaching as well as skills development is provided by full-time and part-time staff in a variety of cultural activities. The school believes cultural excellence is about adding balance in proportion to academia. It is about teaching life lessons and building life-long relationships. We offer a wide range of activities and our girls are encouraged to choose at least one.

Christian Life Community
Christian Life Community is not a Club but a way of life inspired by the spirituality of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, founder of our communities worldwide. The communities meet in small groups to pray and share, supporting one another through the ups and downs of ordinary life. In listening to one another we grow to understand ourselves and deepen our relationship with God and be of service to the needy. Our way of life is guided by three pillars namely SPIRITUALITY, COMMUNITY and MISSION. Membership is open to Form Threes upwards. Our motto is “Everything for the greater glory of God.
This is a formal club for girls in Form 4 upwards and treats information like currency! We add value to it by circulation and discussion. Top stories of the world are discussed extensively in forums and students engage others in meaningful debate on global issues.
