Extra Curricular Activities (ECAs)
At LEH International School Foshan, we believe in nurturing well-rounded individuals who not only excel in the classroom but also thrive outside it. Our Extra-Curricular Activities (ECA) programme plays a pivotal role in achieving this goal, providing students with a platform to explore their passions, develop new skills, and embrace personal growth. They are allowed 2 hours of ECA time each school day, ensuring they have ample time to pursue their interests and develop essential skills. The activities regularly change every term to provide a constantly evolving array of options, ensuring students have a dynamic and relevant range of opportunities.
Welcome to LEH Foshan’s Extra-Curricular Programme!
The Extra-Curricular Activity (ECA) programme aims to offer students a broad experience, allowing them the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities across the academic, supporting them to discover and nurture their innate talents and abilities. It offers opportunities to develop leadership, independence.
In the Prep School, students are offered optional homework support, and in the secondary phase activities are also balanced with academic study time, increasing as students move towards more senior year groups. These academic study slots facilitate LEH Foshan’s aims of creating proactive expert learners, confident in their acquisition of knowledge and pursuit of their passions.
Over the coming year the ECA Programme will provide opportunities for students to take part in a range of academic activities and competitions, for example Model United Nations, debate competitions and competition maths such as Australian Mathematics Competition, and UK Maths Challenge.
LEH Foshan looks forward to supporting our students as they develop into remarkable young men and women.

Our ECA programme has a great choice of activities for our students to choose from ranging from Art and Textiles and Music to drama, Public Speaking and LAMDA. Our sport ECAs have grown this term from our already existing choices of Swimming, Football, Table Tennis and Badminton to externally coached Touch Rugby and Basketball. At the start of the next term, we will be offering our very first Golf ECA run by professionals offsite.
For our Prep School students, the ECA programme is an exciting gateway to personal exploration starting at a young age. They have the freedom to choose an ECA that aligns with their interests and aspirations. Whether it's a passion for the arts, languages, sports, drama, or music, we offer a variety of options that allow them to delve into what interests them the most.
In addition to these options, we offer the Homework Club every day, a teacher-supervised session where students can review their daily lessons and work on homework. This ensures that our young learners maintain a balance between academics and extracurricular pursuits, helping them become well-rounded individuals.
Junior Duke at Prep School
The Junior Duke is a comprehensive scheme with a series of structured exciting and engaging challenges that focus on empowering young students to develop essential life skills and qualities such as independence, teamwork, communication, resilience, and problem-solving.
As students' progress to Secondary School, the ECA programme evolves to meet their growing interests and abilities. A broader spectrum of activities is made available to cater to their diverse preferences and passions. Our Secondary School students can choose from a wide range of activities, including but not limited to:
From ceramics to printmaking and textiles, we provide a creative outlet for budding artists to express themselves.
Join the choir, music academy, or various ensembles to hone musical talents and create harmonious melodies.
Students can shine on stage with activities such as LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) and school musical productions.
From football to basketball, swimming to water polo, our sports offerings help students stay active and competitive.
Clubs and Societies
Engage in intellectually stimulating activities through clubs such as Model United Nations, Debate, Public Speaking, Robotics, and the School Newspaper.
The ECA programme in Secondary School not only allows students to pursue their passions but also encourages them to embrace leadership roles. They can design and lead activities, honing their organisational and interpersonal skills, which are valuable assets for the future.
At LEH Foshan, we view our Extra-Curricular Activities programme as an integral part of a student's educational journey. It is not merely a series of leisure activities but a dynamic platform for students to explore, discover, and develop. It empowers them with essential life skills, fostering teamwork, leadership, time management, and self-confidence. When embracing new activities, their courage is recommendable and reflects our school motto “Hope Favours the Bold.” This motto highlights the importance of courage and taking on new challenges, illustrating that our students embody boldness, resilience, and an unwavering pursuit of excellence.
Moreover, the bonds forged through ECAs often last a lifetime, as students collaborate, compete, and create memorable experiences together. It's not just about academic excellence; it's about nurturing well-rounded individuals who are prepared for the challenges of the real world.
The ECA programme at LEH Foshan is more than just an extra-curricular activity; it's a gateway to personal growth and a rich tapestry of experiences that enhance a student's journey through school and beyond. With a diverse array of activities, passionate mentors, and opportunities to lead, our ECA programme is a testament to our commitment to holistic education and the overall development of our students. Join us in unlocking your child's full potential and helping them thrive in and out of the classroom!
