At Ghars International School, we believe that a child’s development can also occur beyond the classroom. Although we place a strong emphasis on academics, we also have an enthusiastic and encouraging approach to extracurricular activities. Extracurricular activities support learning in many ways. They enable children to acquire practical skills that are not only useful within school but in life too.
Therefore, we have organised a number of programmes that we believe will enhance our children’s capabilities academically, practically and physically.
